The Tuberculosis Control Program is a statewide program that works to prevent the transmission of tuberculosis (TB) by ensuring the completion of treatment and screening persons exposed to tuberculosis and providing diagnostic laboratory services. The goal of the tuberculosis Control Program is to reduce tuberculosis case rates whereby decreasing the transmission of the disease in high-risk groups and the general public.

The program serves all persons suspected or diagnosed with active tuberculosis, contacts to infectious tuberculosis, and persons diagnosed with latent tuberculosis infection. We also serve medical providers and laboratories by providing technical information on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of tuberculosis.
