COMMUNICATIONS, EDUCATION, AND BEHAVIORAL STUDIES BRANCH UPDATES

Notice of Updated Patient TB Educational Materials

The Communications, Education, and Behavioral Studies Branch (CEBSB) is pleased to announce the availability of three patient TB educational materials that were updated in 2005:

  • Questions and Answers About TB
  • Tuberculosis: Get the Facts
  • Tuberculosis: The Connection Between TB and HIV

Questions and Answers About TB uses a question-and-answer format to describe TB transmission, the differences between latent TB infection and active TB disease, treatment, and how multidrug-resistant TB develops. This booklet, written at an 11th grade reading level, is appropriate for distribution to service providers, correctional facility staff, and patients.

Tuberculosis: Get the Facts is a pamphlet on basic facts about TB transmission, infection, disease, and TB testing. Tuberculosis: The Connection Between TB and HIV (the AIDS virus) is a pamphlet on why it is important to know if a person has TB and HIV coinfection. Both of these pamphlets, written at a 5th grade reading level, are appropriate for distribution to patients or the general public.

These and other TB materials may be viewed and downloaded in HTML and PDF versions from the DTBE website at www.cdc.gov/tb. They may also be ordered online by visiting www2.cdc.gov/nchstp_od/piweb/tborderform.asp.
