The mission of the TB Program is to control, prevent, and eventually eliminate tuberculosis from the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Program aims to detect every case of TB in Virginia, assure that every case is adequately and completely treated, and prevent transmission of TB in communities.
World TB Day is March 24. Check out the resources on the CDC website: http://www.cdc.gov/tb/events/WorldTBDay
