Honduras Cultural Competency and Tuberculosis Control: A Practical Guide for Health Professionals Working with Foreign-Born Clients

Southeastern National Tuberculosis Center, SNTC
 Honduras Cultural Competency and Tuberculosis Control: A Practical Guide for Health Professionals Working with Foreign-Born Clients
The Southeastern National Tuberculosis Center in collaboration with the Lung Health Center at the University of Alabama at Birmingham developed this TB-specific cultural competency guide for Honduras. The guide provides epidemiological information for both TB and HIV in the country, nicknames for TB, common misperceptions surrounding the etiology, disease transmission, and cures for TB and HIV as well as the stigma surrounding these diseases. A portion of the guide also provides information regarding polite greetings to use when meeting a person from this country, verbal and non-verbal communication, naming customs, cultural values, and internet links to translated educational materials for your clients. This information will enable you to employ a more culturally relativistic approach to client interviews, TB contact investigations, diagnostic procedures, and patient education and counseling regarding both TB and HIV.
