Institute of Medicine (IOM) Report

The Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE) has developed materials that will assist health departments in disseminating the information in the Institute of Medicine (IOM)  report, Ending Neglect: The Elimination of Tuberculosis in the United States. Here you will find a fact sheet with key messages from the report, which can be used in educating your staff, partners, and the media.

To facilitate dissemination of the fact sheet, we have produced the document in a format that can be easily reproduced (PDF format). There is space for your letterhead at the top of the document. Space is also provided at the end of the document for local TB program information and a resource contact list.
