IRPB Biennial Report 2011-2012 Image of an elderly female TB patient waiting to receive her TB treatment from the chemist’s counter. She spent her daily food money on public transport, and arrived utterly breathless. This photo is on the cover of the CDC International Research and Programs Branch 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: [pdf 8 MB]
