  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Tuberculosis Elimination's (DTBE) strategic plan focuses on the following goals: Domestic: eliminate TB in the United States (defined as ≤1 case/million); Global: contribute to reductions in global incidence and mortality by 50% each (compared to 1990 baseline, based on the Stop TB Partnership Global Plan to Stop TB (2006-2015). DTBE has been carrying out strategic planning sessions periodically since 1989, using surveillance data and scientific findings to identify new directions. Depending on funding availability, DTBE launches new projects through an internal peer-review process, selecting those with the greatest potential for having an impact on eliminating TB. In 2011 DTBE staff refined the approach to U.S. TB elimination to reflect the current environment. This includes budget constraints and the lowest TB rates in history (but with a slowing of the rate of decline), greater complexity in the identification and successful treatment of TB cases, continued increases in foreign-born TB cases, excess TB rates in racial and ethnic minorities, concern over HIV-associated TB and drug-resistant TB, and the U. S. Government's (USG) growing role in addressing TB globally. 10/11/11 - date from document properties CS226225A
