Tuberculosis is one of the top 10 leading causes of death worldwide. It infects one-third of the world's population, and killed more than 1.6 million people in 2017 (World Health Organization), a quarter of the world's preventable deaths. Fort Bend County Clinical Health Services works in conjunction with the Texas Department of State Health Services to prevent and control tuberculosis within our community. The ultimate goal of this program is to eliminate tuberculosis among the residents in Fort Bend County.
