The fight against tuberculosis in France
In France, tuberculosis control involves three main actors: clinicians who make the diagnosis, health and social affairs departments and anti-tuberculosis control centres. In practice, clinicians are required to report any case (probable and confirmed) or latent tuberculosis infection in children under 15 years of age to the health and social affairs departments. The process triggers the intervention of anti-tuberculosis control centres, which ensure the search for contact subjects and the detection of possible secondary cases. Objective: to put in place, quickly, the necessary measures to prevent the spread of the epidemic.
