  • to provide funds to implement programs for identifying and treating those persons who are at a higher risk than other members of the population of having or contracting tuberculosis
  • to provide funds to implement educational programs to inform health workers about the prevention, recognition, and treatment of tuberculosis
  • to provide medication for, and supervision of the use of medication by, members of groups who are at a high risk of having or contracting tuberculosis
