Control of Tuberculosis (TB) is a public health function achieved through early diagnosis and treatment of patients, testing of contacts and treatment of those with latent TB infection (TB infection without active disease, as in a positive TB skin test, normal chest X-ray and no symptoms).  Medications and case management are provided at all clinics.

X-RayLCDHD will provide TB training and support for healthcare facilities within our district.  Please call (606) 678-4761 (ext. 1166).

TB screening and skin testing are provided at all county health departments by appointment.  A specialty TB clinic is provided at the Pulaski County Health Department monthly, please call 606-679-4416 for appointment.  For all other counties (Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, Russell, Taylor and Wayne) clinics will be arranged as needed.
