Health experts call for improved TB care for refugees

Refugees traveling across countries in Europe must have better access to Tuberculosis (TB) diagnostics and treatments in order to prevent a rise in new cases of the disease, according to experts writing in the European Respiratory Journal today.

TB is globally a major cause of mortality, affecting 9.6 million people with 1.5 million deaths in 2014. Vulnerable populations, which often include migrants and refugees, have an increased risk of TB infection. In addition, the rise in the level of cross-border movement has increased the need for collaboration between national health systems.

Experts from the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the European Region of the International Union Against TB and Lung Disease (The Union), call for an improvement in care for this group of people, in order to fulfil a basic human right for the individual living with the condition and to continue efforts to control and eliminate the disease.

The authors of the paper published online today, urge health authorities and other stakeholders to prioritise TB care, prevent and control among refugees. They call for quality surveillance, monitoring, evaluation and research among this group of people, and the promotion of universal access to treatments and care.

To help aid efforts to manage TB cases across borders in Europe, ERS and the World Health Organization (WHO) have established an online platform that encourages treating clinicians to share case notes with each other when a patient has moved countries. It is the first platform in Europe that will exchange patient data on TB and is part of the TB Consilium, which allows clinicians across Europe to submit questions on difficult-to-treat TB cases and get advice from internationally recognised experts.

Professor GB Migliori, an author on the paper and Secretary General of ERS, said: "It is crucial that we facilitate better cooperation across borders. Our new online platform is one method of doing this but we also need better coordination from national health authorities and financial support from the European Commission to improve care for this group of people. We know it is possible to eliminate TB and every effort should be made to prevent the spread of this deadly disease."

Professor Ivan Solovic, President of the European Region of the Union and Chair of the ERS Ad hoc Working Group on TB Advocacy, commented: "TB is not easily transmitted and it is treatable, therefore, efforts should be implemented to detect and treat it promptly. If better treatment options are not available for this group of people, there could be a rise in the number of cases of the disease and related deaths, which could also further contribute to increases in drug-resistant cases of TB."

卫生专家呼吁改善对难民的结核病治疗

       今天,专家在《欧洲呼吸杂志》上写道,为了防止肺结核(TB)新增病例的增加,必须对在欧洲各国穿行的难民进行更好的结核病诊断和治疗。
       肺结核是全球死亡事件的重要因素。2014年,960万人受到肺结核的影响,其中150万人因此而死亡。易受肺结核病攻击的人群一般包括移民和难民,他们的结核病感染风险更高。此外,跨国活动水平的上升增加了对各国卫生系统之间合作的需求。
       来自欧洲呼吸学会(ERS)和欧洲地区抗结核病和肺部疾病的国际联盟(The Union)的专家呼吁改善这类人群的护理,以满足患有这种疾病的人群的基本权利和为控制及消除该病继续努力。
       论文于今天在线发表,作者敦促卫生部门和其他利益相关部门优先在难民中进行结核病的治疗、预防和控制。他们呼吁对这一群体中实施质量监督,监测,评估和研究,并保证他们获得治疗和护理。
      为帮助管理跨欧洲越国界的肺结核病例,ERS和世界卫生组织(WHO)已经建立了一个在线平台,鼓励当一个病人在不用的国家移动的时候,在治疗临床医生之间共享案例报告。它是欧洲第一个针对结核病人的数据进行交换的平台,也是结核病政务会(TB Consilium)的一部分。TB Consilium可以使全欧洲的临床医生针对难治肺结核病例提交问题,并从国际公认的专家那里获得建议。
       论文作者之一,Migliori GB教授是ERS秘书长,他说:“促进跨境之间更好的合作是非常重要的。我们新的在线平台就是这致力于提高这一人群的治疗,同事我们还需要更好地与国家卫生机构合作,以及来自欧洲委员会的财政支持。我们坚信消灭结核病是可能的,并尽一切努力防止这种致命疾病的蔓延。”
       Ivan Solovic教授,the Union欧洲地区主席,以及ERS结核病宣传特设工作组组长,说:“结核病不易传播并可治愈,因此应致力于其及时检测和治疗。如果不向这组人群提供更好的治疗方案,就有可能导致疾病和相关死亡人数的上升,也可能造成耐药结核病病例的增加。
