|Tuberculosis, Communicable Disease and Sexually Transmitted Disease Control
Tuberculosis (TB), Communicable Disease (CD) and Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) programs work to control communicable disease outbreaks and to monitor the health status of our communities. Preventing epidemics and controlling communicable disease is one of the core functions of public health. The TB Program screens for TB infection, TB disease and provides prophylaxis for infection with 4-drug therapy for active disease. CD staff responds to outbreaks and single cases of communicable disease in order to prevent spread in the community. This program reports all communicable diseases to the State and follows trend in morbidity. STD Program works to educate providers and the public about STDs in our population. Follow-up on contact notification, screening, and treatment is also part of the program's activities.
The Immunization Project's goal is to assure appropriate, on-time immunization for infants, children, adolescents and adults in the County. Outreach and education programs are complemented by population-based assessments to measure vaccine coverage. The project acts as a resource to provide accurate and timely immunization information to private and public health care providers, schools and child care centers, and the general public.
