Tuberculosis Control and Refugee Health Branch

About Us

The San Diego County Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program detects, mitigates, and prevents the spread of TB in our community through treatment, case management, contact investigation, and education.

Our mission is to eliminate TB in San Diego County through a variety of evolving approaches, including public-private partnership development, community outreach implementation, and surveillance monitoring coordination. We are guided by the following State of California mandate, Health and Safety Code, Section 121365.

Tuberculosis disease was once the leading cause of death in the United States. Today, however, people with active TB disease can be treated and cured if they seek medical help. Even better, people with latent TB infection can take medicine so they will not develop active TB disease.

We invite you to explore our site to learn more about the program and the services we offer.
