Celebrating 10 Years of Find TB Resources.org!
Launched in October 2003 by CDC’s Division of Tuberculosis Elimination, the Find TB Resources website (www.findtbresources.org) is a one-stop site for finding and sharing TB resources. The website was created to offer a wealth of easily accessible CDC and non-CDC (domestic and international) TB education and training resources for TB health care professionals including physicians, nurses, outreach workers, and health educators, in addition to providing access to materials for the general public.
The Find TB Resources website has continued to grow and evolve since its creation. After undergoing usability testing, a redesigned Find TB Resources Website was launched in September 2011. Some of the features of the redesigned website include a top navigation bar, additional search instructions, thumbnail images of materials, and an enhanced Research section that includes two new pages, the Translating Research into Practice (TRiP) page and the Program Evaluation Tools and Resources page.
New materials and resources are constantly added to the website. It has more than 2,000 resources in its database. Visitors to the website are invited to share their organization's TB-related educational and training materials. Thanks to marketing efforts and the abundance of materials available on the website, Find TB Resources receives visitors from all around the world. In addition, the website continues to offer visitors information on submitting TB materials, tips for adapting materials, funding opportunities, TB organizations, TB mailing lists, and TB images.
Each month, the Find TB Resources E-Newsletter is sent to more than 3,800 subscribers. This monthly newsletter informs readers about the featured Highlight of the Month, additional helpful resources in the database, and other updates to the website.
