Abstract

The majority of active tuberculosis (TB) cases in the United States occur through reactivation of latent TB infection among foreign-born individuals. While screening of at-risk individuals through community partnerships is recommended, it is not commonly accomplished. A community-academic partnership developed a TB-screening intervention at an adult education center serving a large foreign-born population in Rochester, Minnesota. The intervention was cocreated with grant support by diverse stakeholders through a community-based participatory research partnership. The intervention was sustained beyond the grant interval through adaptation of staffing inputs, a robust partnership with sustained dialogue around TB and operational issues, and adaptation of governance through coownership of the intervention by the adult education center and the public health department. Eight years of data demonstrate that adult education centers may be effective venues for sustaining partnerships to address TB prevention among at-risk communities.
