The Texas Department of Health has contracted with the City of Laredo to provide public health services to residents of Laredo and Webb County through the City of Laredo Health Department.

 

This grant awarded by the Texas Department of Health will provide for the continuation of  the Tuberculosis (TB) Special Populations Project, the Tuberculosis Jail Outreach Project, and the “Los Dos Laredos” Binational Tuberculosis Project.  These projects will continue to provide services under this contract which includes: (1) basic services for tuberculosis (TB) prevention and control and (2) expanded outreach services to individuals of identified sub-groups who have TB or who are at high risk of developing TB throughout the defined service area.  In addition, it will continue with a cooperative agreement for the “Los Dos Laredos” Binational TB Project between Laredo and Nuevo Laredo to carry out expanded outreach services, laboratory, x-ray services and treatment to individuals of identified sub-groups in Nuevo Laredo who have tuberculosis.

 

The amendment to the budget consists of a reduction in the amount of $8,190 to match the funding provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  This amount was a one-time award during FY 2001-02 for equipment and which is not available from the CDC for the current fiscal year.
