    In 2000, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published a report, Ending Neglect: The Elimination of Tuberculosis in the United States, detailing the history of efforts to control and eliminate tuberculosis in the United States and recommending a plan to eliminate tuberculosis in the United States by 2035. In 2007, based upon the recommendations from its retreat, the National Coalition for the Elimination of Tuberculosis (NCET) has transitioned to Stop TB USA. The name change reflects the need to be more readily identified as the point of contact for the Stop TB Partnership at the World Health Organization. In late 2007, Stop TB USA assembled a Tuberculosis Elimination Plan Committee to assess the progress since the release of the IOM report and to formulate recommendations to update the IOM plan. This report assesses how and why the IOM's tuberculosis elimination plan has not been fully implemented and provides updated action plans to move forward on its recommendations to accelerate progress toward tuberculosis elimination in the United States.
