Tuberculosis Program

Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial disease primarily of the lungs. It is airborne and spreads when someone with active TB disease coughs, laughs or sings.

To control the spread of TB in Oregon, the TB Program works with local health departments and private medical providers to: 1) identify and treat TB disease; 2) identify, evaluate, and treat newly infected contacts to infectious TB cases; 3) screen high-risk populations for TB infection. The TB Program provides lab testing, technical assistance, TB medications and analysis of surveillance data to assist with accomplishing these goals.
