    "Promoting Cultural Sensitivity: A Practical Guide for Tuberculosis Programs That Provide Services to Persons from China is one guide in a series that aims to help tuberculosis (TB) program staff provide culturally competent TB care to some of our highest priority foreign-born populations. Other guides in the series focus on persons from Somalia, Mexico, Vietnam, and Laos. This guide is intended for health care providers, community-based workers, program planners, administrators, health educators, and resettlement agencies that work with Chinese communities. This guide is designed to increase the knowledge and cultural sensitivity of health care providers, program planners, and any others serving persons from China. The ultimate aim is to foster culturally competent TB care and services for Chinese in the United States. Each guide in this series includes the following: a two-page summary of program tips, chapters on history and immigration; culture; health issues; and common perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs about TB, a concluding summary, appendices, including additional resources for working with TB patients and interpreters, useful resources, references. Some of the information in the guides, such as the practical tips, can be applied directly, while other sections are more informative and will help providers better understand the background and sociocultural context of the population. A deeper understanding of pertinent issues will heighten the cultural sensitivity of TB care providers, enhance communication, and improve the overall effectiveness of organizations and staff in cross-cultural settings. The content of these guides was gathered in two ways. First, an in-depth review of TB-related epidemiologic, behavioral, and ethnographic literature on Chinese in the United States was performed. Secondly, in 2003, the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) undertook a qualitative study to describe ethnographic aspects of the increasing burden of TB among five foreign-born populations. Selected major findings from this study are presented in each of the guides."-- p. 5
