This the Web site of the IUATLD Tuberculosis Division which contains material on bacteriology, clinical diagnosis, epidemiology, interventions, and principles of control.


CDC's mission includes providing leadership in preventing, controlling, and eventually eliminating tuberculosis (TB) from the United States in collaboration with partners at the community, state, and international levels. The Division of TB Elimination is part of CDC's National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention and coordinates CDC's effort in Tuberculosis prevention, control and eventual elimination.

To accomplish its mission, CDC carries out the following activities:

  • Develops and advocates effective and appropriate TB prevention and control policies
  • Supports a nationwide framework for monitoring TB morbidity and mortality
  • Detects and investigates TB outbreaks
  • Conducts clinical, epidemiological, behavioral, and operational research to enhance TB prevention and control efforts
  • Evaluates prevention effectiveness
  • Provides funding and technical assistance to state and local health departments
  • Provides training, education, and technical information services to state and local health departments
The TB section of the NPIN Web site is designed to facilitate the sharing of information and resources on tuberculosis for all individuals searching for prevention information.
