About Us

The California TB Controllers Association (CTCA) supports the work local health department (LHD) TB Program staff and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) TB Control Branch (TBCB) staff do together to develop and share policy and practice improvements in TB care and prevention in California. This partnership ensures collaborative and effective TB care and prevention across California.

CTCA is volunteer led.  The Executive Committee (EC), is made up of representatives from large, medium and small/rural health jurisdictions. Terms last for one year. Officers cycle through 4 years of leadership.  CTCA is governed by its Bylaws (rev March 2019). At the beginning of each EC cycle a Work Plan is created to identify and prioritize work.  Workgroups/committees form as needed.  The EC meets monthly. TB Controllers are invited to the calls.  Contact us to find out more about these calls, the current work plan or to join us in any of the work reflected on this website.
