Tuberculosis screening campaign for international students

On The September 2, 2021

The Université de Lyon supports the Departmental Center for Social Health (Comité Départemental d'Hygiène Sociale – CDHS) in its tuberculosis screening campaign for international students.

All international students from countries with a high risk of TB are strongly encouraged to be screened when they arrive in France (see the list of countries in the file opposite). If you are from one of these countries, you can go to one of the six CDHS health and prevention centers to receive free health care, including:
  • A medical examination,
  • A skin test,
  • A chest X-ray to check your lungs.

Results are strictly confidential and, in case of a positive result, you are entitled to free treatment and follow-up by a specialist.

So what are you waiting for? Get screened today!
