Baja California, San Diego County Team Up Against TB
Public health officials in San Diego County and the Mexican state of Baja California are teaming up in a cross-border effort to prevent the spread of drug-resistant tuberculosis. The San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency is working with Baja California through Bridges of Hope, a $500,000 program aimed at curbing drug-resistant TB. In addition, Baja California recently opened a new $700,000 TB clinic and laboratory using funds from the Mexican federal government.
