One of the Florida Department of Health’s missions, in a vast array of services geared toward the improvement of Florida’s Health, is to eliminate tuberculosis in the state through administration of a statewide TB program that supports the Florida System of Tuberculosis Care. 

The Department is committed to protecting communities across Florida from the spread of TB by providing leadership, policy development to assure provision of coordinated care to persons with active TB disease, their close contacts and other persons at high risk for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI), and by assuring a system of care is in place to manage complicated TB patients. In addition, we provide community healthcare and non-healthcare provider training and technical assistance related to TB control and prevention; assure accurate case reporting; perform program monitoring and evaluation; and serve as liaison to laboratories, pharmacies, other state, federal,  and non-profit agencies and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
