Hawaii Tuberculosis Control Program
Welcome to the Hawaii Department of Health's Hawaii Tuberculosis Control Program web application.
The State of Hawai`i aims to make effective testing and treatment accessible for everyone. See
for a listing of free TB testing and treatment opportunities throughout the state. See
State TB Testing Regulations
for a list of who needs a TB clearance.
The purpose of the TB Control Program is to reduce the incidence of tuberculosis in the state by providing
effective prevention, detection, treatment and educational services.
Offer diagnosis and treatment of TB.
Ensure that all cases and suspected cases of TB are identified and that appropriate therapy is provided.
Provide preventive therapy for patients at high risk of developing TB disease including contacts of active cases,
those who are HIV positive and those with evidence of untreated TB.
Conduct direct TB services including chest x-ray, sputum smear and culture for mycobacteria,
tuberculin skin testing and anti-tuberculosis therapy, and directly observed therapy (DOT)
through TB clinics on the four most heavily populated islands.
