Welcome to the Tuberculosis and Newcomer Health Program

The mission of the Tuberculosis (TB) Control program is to control, prevent, and eventually eliminate TB 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.

The mission of the Newcomer Health program is to provide an initial health screening to newly arrived refugees and other qualified individuals, address health issues that may impact successful resettlement, and identify and intervene on diseases and conditions of public health concern.
