This guideline is an update of the Victoria Department of Health and Community Services' previous publication of "Management, Control and Prevention of Tuberculosis: Guidelines for Health Care Providers in 1995." Chapters on the hospital care of active TB and the prevention of infection in health care workers have been revised and expanded.
