The problem of tuberculosis in penitentiary institutions is still relevant today. While the number of prisoners reduced by 3.7% in 2015 compared to 2014, TB incidence among persons entering preliminary detention units remains the same. However, in prisons incidence of tuberculosis and mortality has declined by 10% and 35.2%, respectively, over the same period. In order to optimize approaches to the prevention of tuberculosis in penitentiary institutions, we examined the prevalence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection and the incidence of mental stress among inmates on their admission to an Altai territory detention unit. Based on the study results, we suggest measures for TB prevention in prisons.
