The forced population movements due to the humanitarian crisis (war, sexual abuse, inequality) that has prevailed for years in their countries of origin is a problem of global dimensions that plagues modern society. Since 2015, nearly one million people have crossed Turkey's coasts, mainly from West Asian countries, and have reached a Greek island, seeking shelter in northern Europe.
According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, refugees displaced due to war or persecution are often in a very vulnerable position. As the density of people arriving at the first reception points is increased, they are deprived of fundamental human rights, including access to healthcare. This can easily lead to the outbreak of illnesses for which the provision of health services is incomplete. One of these illnesses is tuberculosis.
