TB Manual Chapter 3: Targeted Testing for LTBI

TB Manual Chapter 3: Targeted Testing for LTBI covers the fact that reducing latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) in high-risk populations is an important strategy to control TB. This chapter discusses targeted testing for LTBI, a strategic component of TB control that identifies persons who are at high risk for developing TB and who would benefit by treatment of LTBI, if detected. This chapter also identifies approaches to increase targeted testing and screening for TB infection in facilities such as hospitals, long-term care facilities, and prisons.
