Advocacy Committee

NTCA Advocacy Committee

The NTCA Advocacy Committee works with partner organizations to educate our elected officials at the federal, state, and local levels about the significant public health risks created by TB, an airborne communicable disease. The purpose of these educational efforts is to raise awareness of the need for continued vigilance and renewed commitment to eliminating this preventable disease. Strong and expert TB public health infrastructures are imperative if we are to truly protect the public’s health. Increased funding for TB programs – at all levels – is essential if we are to be successful in our elimination efforts.
