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.
GOAL The goals of the TB Elimination Alliance are to:
Conduct outreach to underserved AA, NH, and PI communities with the highest TB burden
Increase awareness and understanding of culturally and linguistically appropriate LTBI/TB testing and treatment strategies
Share resources and best practices among providers
Develop partnerships to scale existing initiatives
