  • Description:
    "Worldwide, the highest priorities for tuberculosis control are comprehensive case finding and case holding. This is how patients are cured of tuberculosis. Besides saving the lives and the productivity of the individuals who have tuberculosis, society gains an additional benefit: when the patients are cured, transmission is interrupted. Case finding and case holding in the United States are monitored through the national surveillance system, which is explained in separate guidance from the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Aggregate Reports for Tuberculosis Program Evaluation (ARPEs), the subject of these instructions, help you to evaluate some other activities that have a different approach. In the United States, resources for tuberculosis control are available for going beyond curing cases by preventing them in the first place. Examples of prevention activities are contact tracing, targeted tuberculin testing, and treating latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). These activities accelerate tuberculosis elimination, but they are labor intensive and offer mainly remote return for the investment. Therefore, careful evaluation of these activities is critical for assessing their validity in your setting. ARPEs are the national summary tools for confirming the merit of these activities for you. This manual will help you in three general tasks for ARPEs. The first task is collecting the best data that is feasible in your setting. The second is assembling the data, storing and combining the reports, and submitting them efficiently. The third is the most important: interpreting the results of your reports while considering their limitations. This final task creates the opportunities for improvements in your tuberculosis-prevention activities." -- p. 1
