TIJUANA - The incidence of tuberculosis in the city is the highest in all Mexico. It is almost four times greater than the national average, with 54 cases per 100,000 inhabitants against the national average of 14 per 100,000.

Tuberculosis is concentrated in the area called El Bordo up to the El Solar subdivision, colonia Francisco Villa and Avenida RevoluciĆ³n, forming a triangle.

After an investigation in the area, it can be shown the causes of the prevalence are obvious: drug consumption, homelessness, concentrations of migrants and poor access to public and private medical services in the area.
