Tuberculosis


The goal of the Alaska Tuberculosis (TB) Program is the eventual elimination of TB from Alaska. This will be accomplished through a collaborative effort with federal, state and local partners.  The State TB program oversees TB control in the state and manages a cooperative agreement from CDC which provides some funding to assist with TB control efforts.  

The State TB Program:

  • provides medications for persons suspected or confirmed to have active TB disease
  • ensures all persons with TB infection or disease are on appropriate regimens
  • assists with the monitoring of persons on therapy for TB infection or disease
  • provides consultations to providers, public health nurses, and the public
  • assists with the identification of persons exposed and possibly infected with TB
  • provides TB education and outreach to partners throughout the State
