This article aims to identify how the health system in Tak province, Thailand has responded to migrants’ barriers to tuberculosis (TB) treatment. Although this research is specific to the Thailand–Myanmar border, the authors anticipate that the findings will contribute to broader conversations around the inputs that are necessary to address disparities and inequities. Their study suggests that migrants need to be provided with resources that help stabilize their financial situation and overcome difficulties associated with their legal status in order to access and continue TB treatment.
