Centers of Excellence (COE)

In 2005, the CDC's Division of Tuberculosis Elimination, funded four TB Centers of Excellence (COE). The COEs are regionally assigned to cover all 50 states and the U.S. territories. The primary purpose of each COE is to:

  • Provide training and technical assistance to increase human resource development in TB programs;
  • Develop TB educational materials (COE TB Training and Education Products Webpage); and
  • Provide medical consultation to TB programs and medical providers.

To learn more about each COE, please click on the corresponding region on the map below.
