ABSTRACT
Tuberculosis is a crucial problem for labour migrants and affordability of medical treatment is an important question. Majority of labour migrants don’t undergo medical examination before they leave Tajikistan, if they did it would provide information on tuberculosis. The research shows that labour migrants are poorly informed of tuberculosis prevention, detection and treatment. The article draws the conclusion, concerning rendering of medical services to labour migrants before their leave or after their return to Tajikistan.
