Georgia TB Reference Guide

The Georgia TB Reference Guide is now available as an app for IOS and Androids. 

This app responds to clinicians’ questions about tuberculosis infection, disease, and control. The standards and guidelines are based on the work and experience of the American Thoracic Society (ATS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA), Emory University, and the World Health Organization (WHO). This edition contains updated recommendations on the treatment of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) and treatment of active tuberculosis disease.

Development of the app was supported by the Georgia Department of Public Health through Contract 40500-046-21203197.
