Reduce tuberculosis (TB)
Baseline: 2.8 new cases of confirmed TB per 100,000 population were reported in 2017
Target: 1.4 new cases of confirmed TB per 100,000 population
Although the number of tuberculosis (TB) cases in the United States has decreased over the past 2 decades, progress is slowing down. And millions of people have latent TB infection (LTBI), which can progress to active TB. Efforts to identify and cure people with active TB — and to expand testing and treatment for LTBI — can help reduce cases of the disease nationwide.
