Orrett, Fitzroy A.; Shurland, Simone M.
Journal of Community Health, v26 n6 p479-85 Dec 2001
Surveyed pre-university high school students in Trinidad regarding their awareness and knowledge of tuberculosis. Results indicated that while most students had heard of tuberculosis, knowledge levels were generally poor regarding the major presenting features of tuberculosis, vaccination and treatment, and the impact of overcrowded living conditions and living among a population with little native resistance to the disease.
