TB Community Engagement Network

Health Disparities

The Tuberculosis (TB) Community Engagement Network works closely with state and local TB control programs, focusing on outreach to AA communities with the highest TB burden. The TB Community Engagement Network will build upon health care provider capacity and support at-risk communities of TB. The initiative will bring together community-based organizations across the United States to increase knowledge, testing, and treatment of TB and latent TB infection (LTBI) among high-risk communities.
