The TB Crisis Tracker is a map of the United States, identifying recent TB cases in the news with a focus on TB in specific institutional settings. We created the TB Crisis Tracker to bring more transparency and attention to the domestic TB crisis and help inform communities, policy makers, and local NGOs. Please note that the Aeras TB Crisis Tracker is not a complete list of all U.S. TB cases. Comprehensive information about the state of TB in the U.S. is available from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
