Working to Stop the Spread of TB in Oregon

About the TB Program

The TB Program works with local health departments and private medical providers to:

1) identify and treat TB disease;

2) identify, evaluate, and treat newly infected contacts to infectious TB cases;

3) screen high-risk populations for TB infection.

The TB Program provides lab testing, technical assistance, TB medications and analysis of surveillance data to assist with accomplishing these goals.
