Tuberculosis Partnership with CDC
March 12, 2013
On Monday, March 11, 2013, the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) united to discuss strategies for maximizing tuberculosis (TB) care in the state of Florida. The continued collaboration will help the Department achieve the Florida System of Tuberculosis Care’s goal of reducing the TB rate in Florida by 50 percent by 2020 and eventually eliminating TB in the state.
DOH’s Tuberculosis Program serves as the foundation of the agency’s role in the Florida System of Tuberculosis Care. The program is responsible for ensuring a statewide program that meets national standards for TB elimination through policy development, allocation of resources to support program implementation, monitoring of TB trends and program evaluation.
