Preface

With the rapid development of economy, international communication, tourism, migration, and labor, as well as world population mobility increase significantly. Such migration and mobility pose a serious challenge to the prevention and control of tuberculosis. Shenzhen, a new and open city in southern China near Hong Kong, has more than 10 million immigrants from all over China. Only a few cities in China and even in the world have such large population of immigrants. Large-scale population mobility makes tuberculosis epidemic control much more difficult. It can seriously endanger human health. We have carried out a systematic research on this important issue in human health for many years, constructed and implemented tuberculosis control strategy, initiated tuberculosis management and control model, and set up a tuberculosis control strategy for migrating population. Such strategy of monitoring system for tuberculosis control of migrating population in China has greatly reduced the epidemics of tuberculosis in the migrating population in Shenzhen; therefore, the incidence of tuberculosis has been effectively controlled. Such successful results have been well recognized by the WHO and the China Tuberculosis Control Organization. In order to achieve the important WHO goal of “Eradicating Tuberculosis” by 2035, we need to make a marked progress in the discovery, registration, referrals, reception, and management of tuberculosis patients in migrating population. Additionally, it is of great importance to promote the strategy and measures for the advanced management and control of tuberculosis in the migrating population. Hence, we have organized data from more than 40 senior scholars who are actively in tuberculosis prevention and control and clinical research, including experts in prevention and control, infectious diseases, pulmonary, imaging, pathology, and experimental research. We also compiled the latest research results in tuberculosis prevention and control from China and abroad and composed a book entitled “Tuberculosis Control in migrating population.” The book is divided into ten chapters covering the epidemic of tuberculosis in migrating population, the strategies and technologies for control of tuberculosis, the diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis, the management of tuberculosis in migrating population, and the prevention and control of tuberculosis in schools. We also present a new technology of emergency treatment during public health emergency, prevention and control of drug-resistant tuberculosis, double infection of TB/HIV, and so on. During the course of writing this book, we tried to keep track of the latest developments in the TB control in migrating population, prevention and treatment of drug-resistant tuberculosis, and HIVassociated tuberculosis. This book is the first one in China and abroad focusing on prevention and control of tuberculosis among migrating population. This book provides comprehensive introduction and elaboration of prevention and control strategies, as well as integrates various research results. We compiled this book in such a way that it contains abundant content, several outstanding points, the lush pictures, strong practicability, and unique characteristic. It is a valuable book for medical workers and medical students in tuberculosis prevention and control, respiratory and infectious disease control, imaging department, laboratory, pathologydepartment, and other medical workers. At the same time, it is intended to provide a useful reference for the relevant medical workers in the world, especially in the “the Belt and Road” countries and regions.
