Project Grants and Cooperative Agreements for Tuberculosis Control Programs

To assist State and local health agencies in carrying out tuberculosis (TB) control activities designed to prevent transmission of infection and disease.

Financial assistance is provided to TB programs to ensure that the program needs for the core TB prevention and control activities are met:
finding all cases of active tuberculosis and ensuring completion of therapy; finding and screening persons who have had contact with TB patients, evaluating them for TB infection and disease, and ensuring completion of appropriate treatment, and conducting TB surveillance and TB public health laboratory activities that are essential to addressing these priorities.

Each of these core activities (completion of therapy, contact investigation, TB surveillance, and TB laboratory activities) is essential to effective TB prevention and control, and they are mutually reinforcing.

Thus, they constitute a 'package' of core activities.

These are the highest priority TB prevention and control activities and should be carried out by all State and local TB prevention and control programs.

Agency - Department of Health and Human Services

The Department of Health and Human Services is the Federal government's principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially to those who are least able to help themselves.
