Web Tools for State-Level TB Interventions

Web Tools for State-Level TB Interventions

The primary aim of this project is to enable state-level TB controllers and public health officials to access model-based results and data (that we are developing) on the impact of state-level TB interventions in a user-friendly and interactive fashion. The states considered are California, Florida, New York, and Texas, which together contribute to more 50% of new TB cases in the United States. The interventions modeled are: (i) targeted testing and treatment of high-risk populations (consisting of non-US-born individuals, diabetics, HIV+, individuals that are homeless and incarcerated), and (ii) enhanced contact investigation.
