The mission of the Center for Tuberculosis (TB) Control and Prevention (CTBCP) is to control the spread of TB in Maryland, prevent new infections and increase the access of people diagnosed with TB to care and treatment.

Finally, this person will participate in program-specific fiscal projections; serve as a liaison to both PHPA's Office of Budget and Management and federal agencies (e.g., Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR)); and, provide information to program staff, as required.
