The VTP team includes public health nurse consultants, epidemiologists and others working for better public health management of tuberculosis across Victoria.

The Victorian Tuberculosis Program (VTP) aims to support the successful prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure, towards the global goal of the elimination of TB.

Latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) is an asymptomatic condition that may progress to active tuberculosis (TB), sometimes decades after exposure. Most people with active TB in Australia have not had recent contact and have been unaware of their risk.

Supply of drugs for the treatment of TB across Victoria is coordinated through the Royal Melbourne Hospital Pharmacy

The Victorian Tuberculosis Program is actively engaged in independent and collaborative research to improve our services, and to support better understanding of TB and its impact.

The Victorian Tuberculosis Program acts to ensure that every person with TB disease receives the right treatment at the right time.
