Traduction en anglais : Migration and tuberculosis in Austria.
For a long time the risk of importing tuberculosis via immigrants and asylum seekers from countries with a high infection prevalence has been a much-discussed problem.
Statistically significant increases in tuberculosis incidence were first regisered in the USA in the wake of several immigration waves, and then the former colonial powers in Europe, France and the United Kingdom, were faced with the problem in the 50 s and 60 s. It was found that not only tuberculosis morbidity, but also the risk of infection and illness were much higher among immigrants from the former African colonies, the West Indies, Pakistan, and India than among the native Europeans, which gave rise to the utmost concern.
The same reactions were incited by the first reports on the socalled « foreign-worker tuberculosis » from Switzerland in the early 60 s and not much later from the FRG.
