In 2012, an estimated 8.6 new million TB cases were identified worldwide while an estimated 1.3 million died from the disease (WHO, 2013). In US, a total of 9,951 TB cases (3.2 per 100,000) were reported in 2012 (CDC, 2013). Tuberculosis in the United States is the disease of the minorities (see Figure 1), with the highest number of cases being reported in California, Texas, Florida, and New York (Miramontes, 2012). Combined, these four states accounted for 4,967 TB cases, representing half (49.9%) of all TB cases reported in 2012 (CDC, 2013). In 2012, California alone reported 2,191 new tuberculosis (TB) cases, an incidence rate of 5.8 cases per 100,000 people (CDPH, 2013).
