In addition, objectives include: finding all cases of active tuberculosis and ensuring completion of therapy; finding and screening persons who have had contact with TB patients, evaluating them for TB infection and disease, and ensuring completion of appropriate treatment; and conducting TB surveillance and TB public health laboratory activities that are essential to addressing these priorities. Each of these core activities (completion of therapy, contact investigation, TB surveillance, and TB laboratory activities) is essential to effective TB prevention and control.
