An interjurisdictional referral system is supported by the NTCA/NTNC in order to promote continuity of care for TB patients who move from one state to another during the course of TB treatment. This system also facilitates the completion of contact tracing for contacts who move prior to completion of TB exposure evaluation.
The NTCA/NTNC maintains a current list of interjurisdictional contacts for each state and large city. These are public health professionals that oversee the exchange of pertinent information about TB patients and/or TB contacts. The NTCA/NTNC also has designed forms and a protocol for their use. See interjurisdictional resources on the right.
If you have any questions about the interjurisdictional process in your state, please call your state’s interjurisdictional contact (from the TB Program Contacts list) or TB Controller (from the TB Program Contacts list).
Any corrections to the contact listings should be emailed to Eva Forest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
