Tuberculosis Control

The Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program at the Sonoma County Department of Health Services offers a number of services to assist both patients and health providers, including:

  • Evaluation and treatment of patients with suspected or active tuberculosis (TB)
  • Medical consultation to health providers
  • Case management
  • Health education and counseling
  • Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) in clinic and community settings
