Tuberculosis (TB)

Tuberculosis Prevention and Control

Tuberculosis (TB) is an infection caused by bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria can infect any part of the body but usually infect the lungs.

Health care providers and state and local health departments in Wisconsin work closely together to control TB by ensuring that all people with active TB disease and TB infection obtain the evaluation and treatment they need.

Public health services provided by the Brown County Pubic Health Division and the Wisconsin State TB Program include:

• Surveillance and investigation.
• Free TB medications and directly observed medication administration.
• Case management and contact investigation for every person with active TB.
• Patient and professional education.
• Consultation.
• Public health laboratory services.
• Screening persons at high risk for TB.
