What is AHD doing during the PPD shortage?

-- We are continuing to... 

  • Evaluate, treat and case manage individuals for TB disease
  • Investigate contacts of pulmonary TB cases
  • Screen individuals for risk of latent TB infection (LTBI)

-- Prioritizing the use of PPD according to the latest CDC and VDH guidance 

-- Offering T-spot testing (a blood test that helps diagnose latent TB infection)
