In this article we describe an integrated model for the evaluation and risk management of tuberculosis (TB) infection and active TB in socially disadvantaged populations in the city of Rome. We describe and discuss the clinical evaluation procedures performed and the data collection forms used; these tools are useful for the epidemiologic surveillance and clinical management of patients, particularly high risk patients such as the homeless.
