Tuberculosis Information

Many people think that tuberculosis (TB) is a disease of the past - an illness, like smallpox, that no longer threatens us today. One reason for this belief is that, in the United States, we are currently seeing a decline in TB, and we are at an all-time low in the number of new cases. However, that very success makes us vulnerable to the complacency and neglect that come with declining numbers of visible persons suffering with TB. But it also gives us an opportunity to eliminate TB in this country. Now is the time to take decisive actions, beyond our current efforts, that will ensure that we reach this attainable goal.
