The goal of the Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program is the elimination of TB from Alaska. This program prevents transmission of the TB organism to people in the community by coordinating activities to:
- identify persons with TB infection and offer preventive therapy, when appropriate
- identify all persons with TB disease and provide appropriate and complete treatment on anti-tuberculosis therapy
- identify persons exposed to infectious TB disease and provide follow-up and treatment as needed
- Mark your calendars, World TB Day is March 24. Click here for more information.
