The mission of the Minnesota Department of Health Tuberculosis (TB) Program is to prevent and control the transmission of TB in Minnesota. The TB Program collects and analyzes surveillance data to monitor epidemiologic trends; provides consultation to clinicians and local public health departments to assure appropriate clinical management and adequate therapy for TB patients and persons exposed to TB disease; collaborates with community-based organizations and voluntary agencies to reach communities affected by TB; provides TB-related education for health-care providers, public health professionals, and the general public; and coordinates and administers a statewide program to provide TB medications free of charge.
