Tuberculosis Elimination Alliance

The Tuberculosis Elimination Alliance, formerly known as the Tuberculosis (TB) Community Engagement Network (CEN), works closely with state and local TB control programs, focusing on outreach to AA, NH, and PI communities with the highest TB burden. The TB Community Engagement Network builds upon health care provider capacity and support at-risk communities of TB. The initiative brings together community-based organizations across the United States to increase knowledge, testing, and treatment of TB and latent TB infection (LTBI) among high-risk communities.
