CDC Launches Think. Test. Treat TB Campaign

Posted by on March 31st, 2022 Posted in: Blog, HIV, Public Health, Regional Interest

The CDC has recently launched a communication campaign on tuberculosis called Think.  Test.  Treat TB.   The campaigns goal is to increase testing and treatment for latent tuberculosis infection in the US.  According to a recent blog on HIV.gov  “Up to 13 million people are living with latent tuberculosis infection in the United States. Without treatment, 5-10% of people with latent TB infection will develop TB disease. Yet, the notion that TB is no longer a problem persists.”  TB is an important public health issue that is disproportionately impacting Asian American communities.   While the campaign will initially reach individuals born in Vietnam and the Philippines that currently reside in LA and Seattle, materials have been developed that can be used nationwide.

Visit the CDC website for more information on the campaign and to access free resources including TB messagesdigital and print resources, social media content, patient and provider education materials, and a partner toolkit.
