California and Mexico to Battle TB Problem Together
Times of San Diego

Public health officials from both sides of the border Friday signed an agreement for a joint effort to battle tuberculosis.

Nearly one third of San Diego County’s TB patients have ties to Baja California, according to the county Health and Human Services Agency. In 2014, the HHSA reported 220 cases of the disease.

This comes as the annual number of cases in the region has dropped by around half over the past 20 years.
