    "Promoting Cultural Sensitivity: A Practical Guide for Tuberculosis Programs That Provide Services to Persons from Somalia 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 China, 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 Somali communities. This guide is designed to increase the knowledge and cultural sensitivity of health care providers, program planners, and any others serving persons from Somalia. The ultimate aim is to foster culturally competent TB care and services for Somalis in the United States." -- p. 5
