INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH AND PROGRAMS BRANCH UPDATESIRPB Biennial Report 2011-2012
The mission of DTBE’s International Research and Programs Branch (IRPB) is to contribute to the reduction of TB prevalence and mortality globally, as well as among foreign-born persons in the United States. Activities are carried out through partnerships with other U.S. government (USG) agencies and various international agencies and groups.
A number of IRPB’s significant accomplishments from 2011 through 2012 have been highlighted in its Biennial Report. These achievements were made possible through collaboration with and extensive support from our USG partner agencies and our partner governments’ TB programs, TB laboratories, and HIV/AIDS control programs. The Biennial Report includes a compilation of select accomplishments and proposed activities which embody IRPB’s mission and focus areas. Please access the report at the following link:
