The Tennessee Department of Health’s Tuberculosis (TB) Elimination Program works with community partners on three important strategies to eradicate TB in Tennessee.
- Identify persons with TB disease and ensure completion of appropriate therapy.
- Perform contact investigations around infectious cases to identify persons recently infected; evaluate and treat contacts for TB and latent (or inactive) TB infection (LTBI).
- Perform targeted TB testing with high risk persons to identify LTBI/TB and provide appropriate therapy if necessary.
