Community TB Control

Training and Education

TB control programs should provide training for all program staff and should provide leadership in TB education to the community. TB control programs should form networks and coalitions with community-based organizations that work in communities with a high prevalence of TB to ensure that community leaders, clinicians, and policymakers are knowledgeable about TB; to educate the public about TB; and in some instances, to help provide testing and prevention services.
