Prevention

TB prevention and controls takes two parallel approaches.

  1. In the first, people with TB and their contacts are identified and then treated.
  2. In the second approach, children are vaccinated to protect them from TB. A vaccine against TB, called BCG, is widely used around the world. BCG helps reduce the risk of serious TB in children. However, it may provide adults with little or no protection against the disease.
