Vision: A Georgia free of TB
The mission of the Georgia Tuberculosis (TB) Program is to control transmission, prevent illness and ensure treatment of disease due to TB. This is accomplished by the following core strategies:
- Identifying and treating persons who have active TB disease
- Finding, screening and treating contacts
- Screening high-risk populations.
The Georgia TB Program has the legal responsibility for all TB clients in Georgia regardless of who provides the direct services. TB services are available to all who fall within the service criteria without regard to the client's ability to pay.
