    • Description:
      As part of the CDC Tuberculosis (TB) Elimination and Laboratory Cooperative Agreement (CoAg), 58 supported state, local and territorial public health laboratories (PHLs) submit an Annual Performance Report (APR). The primary focus of the CoAg is laboratory strengthening. In each APR, PHLs self-report their TB testing methods and algorithms performed, progress or barriers encountered for the three focus areas defined as part of the CoAg, and laboratory workload volume and turnaround time (TAT) performance data. Data are compiled and presented in this report, the Tuberculosis Laboratory Aggregate Report: Sixth Edition.

      The purpose of this report is for PHLs to assess progress towards meeting national TB testing benchmarks and for peer comparison with other PHLs with similar specimen or testing volume, using similar methods, or in a similar geographical location. Laboratories should monitor and evaluate TB workload volume and TAT indicators with a goal of improving performance by setting realistic, incremental laboratory-specific goals. Additionally, laboratory practices should be assessed to identify, address, and evaluate quality improvements.
