Announcements: Menu of Suggested Provisions for State Tuberculosis Prevention and Control Laws Available Online

Tuberculosis (TB) laws provide authority for state and local TB programs to prevent and control TB, an airborne infectious disease that sickens approximately 11,000--12,000 persons each year in the United States (1). CDC, in collaboration with the National Tuberculosis Controllers Association, has developed a Menu of Suggested Provisions for State Tuberculosis Prevention and Control Laws. A request by the Advisory Council for the Elimination of Tuberculosis for a model TB prevention and control act prompted development of the menu.

The menu features a set of alternative provisions within each section for consideration by public health officials and their legal counsel in the enactment, promulgation, amendment, or implementation of laws to prevent and control TB. The menu is intended to serve as a practical resource for public health officials and their legal counsel in their efforts to eliminate TB. This document is available at http://www.cdc.gov/tb/programs/laws/menu/default.htm and http://www2.cdc.gov/phlp/tbcontrol.asp.
