Clinical Services Program

Tuberculosis Elimination

Cameron County Public Health operates a Tuberculosis (TB) Elimination Program to help identify, prevent, control, and mitigate the spread of tuberculosis. With Cameron County being a border community, there is an increased risk of TB infection. Keep in mind, TB infection differs from TB disease, which can be fatal if not treated properly. This is where the work of our TB team comes into play.

Our TB clinics operates out of Harlingen and Brownville to help ensure we are accessible and available to our Cameron County communities.  For questions about our TB Program services or make a referral, please feel free to contact our TB Clinic at (956) 574-8753.
