This project is to focus on activities that impact tuberculosis (TB) control in the United States by facilitating active and timely communication between CDC, DTBE and the local, state and territorial programs in the United States.
This project will enhance communication--identifying new ways
to incorporate technology to provide real-time interaction between state, local, and federal partners.
In addition, the National Tuberculosis Association (NTCA) will continue to develop and enhance partnerships with other federal agencies and advocacy-oriented organizations, such as STOP TB USA.
The work, if supported, in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)/Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE) will assist with advancing efforts to ultimately eliminate TB in the United States.
NTCA is a leader among TB control officials in state, big city, and territorial programs--providing the field expertise, the infrastructure, and credibility to lead efforts, working collaboratively with CDC/DTBE to accelerate the decline--and ultimately the elimination of TB in the United States.
