To better understand the tuberculosis (TB) and latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI)-related practices and associated challenges at community health centers (CHCs), a 2022 needs assessment was conducted as a continuation of the 2017 AAPCHO-led TB/LTBI needs assessment project to determine the needs of Asian-, Asian American- (A/AA), Native Hawaiian-, and Pacific Islander (NH/PI)-serving CHCs and understand current protocols for TB-related screening, testing, and treatment. A total of 20 qualitative and quantitative surveys and four interviews were conducted with qualifying CHCs located in the U.S. and U.S. Territories, which serve primarily A/AA and NH/PI communities.
After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Share the findings and recommendations from the 2022 needs assessment which seeks to gain a deeper understanding of the needs of A/AA and NH/PI-serving CHCs’ and their current protocols for TB-related screening, testing, and treatment; and
- Learn about the TB Elimination Alliance initiative and training opportunities for community health centers and community-based organizations.
Clinicians, clinical supervisors, community health workers, and other staff at community health centers, federally qualified health centers, health center lookalikes, and community-based organizations interested in TB/LTBI screening, testing, and treatment.
