Projected Percentage Reductions in TB Incidence, 2016-2025 for key populations in California, Florida, New York and Texas

This tool is a web application that shows the projected impact of increased targeted testing and treatment on tuberculosis incidence among different high-risk populations in the four states: California, Florida, New York and Texas. The charts shown in this tool are based on calculations from reported TB incidence data in the United States. They can be used to understand differences in the impact of TTT across high-risk groups in each of four states.

Depending on the requirements of TB controllers in each state, this tool can:
1.     Illustrate the potential impact of increased targeted testing and treatment on TB incidence among key populations;
2.     Highlight projected between-state differences in TB reduction under TTT to inform TB elimination programs.
