Cure TB Referral Program

Cure TB

The Cure TB program works to prevent the spread of tuberculosis (TB) among people who cross international borders. To reduce disease transmission and the emergence of drug-resistant TB, Cure TB connects people with TB to healthcare services as they move between the United States and other countries. The program is a collaboration between the County of San Diego's Tuberculosis Control Program and the CDC’s Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ). Cure TB collaborates with health authorities throughout the United States and around the world to link people with TB to care at their destinations. Health departments, healthcare providers, and others seeking help in linking patients to ongoing TB care in other countries can refer patients to Cure TB.

Cure TB accomplishes its community-centered goal of reducing the spread of TB by:

  • Linking patients with TB to care outside the United States and coming to the United States.
  • Collecting and providing high-quality clinical information to healthcare providers.
  • Educating patients and motivating them for continued adherence.
  • Promoting integrated care by coordinating with US and global partners.
  • Determining treatment outcomes.
