Tackling TB: An information pack for staff and volunteers working with homeless people. (March 2006, 16 pages) This information and training pack, developed in partnership with Homeless Link, is designed for staff and volunteers working with homeless people. Tuberculosis rates in the UK are on the increase and homeless people are especially vulnerable to the disease. Previous Crisis research has shown that nearly one in 50 homeless people had TB - 25 times the national average. TB is curable but without treatment it can kill. Early detection and support through treatment is therefore crucial for TB control.
