LTBI Flipbook: A Patient Education Tool

Go to online LTBI Flipbook page

This product was developed as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and TB Centers of Excellence, U.S. Affiliated Pacific Island initiative. The flipbook is designed as a guide and teaching tool for healthcare personnel to use when providing patient education to persons at risk for TB infection, or newly diagnosed with LTBI. It contains basic information on latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI), its diagnosis, transmission, treatment benefits and potential side effects. 

The LTBI flipbook was developed in collaboration with the Chuuk State TB and Hansen’s Disease Program, the Federated States of Micronesia National TB Program, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Curry International Tuberculosis Center. The Chuukese LTBI flipbook underwent extensive field testing in Chuuk and was designed with culturally appropriate images and references. 

Both an English and Chuukese version of the flipbook are available online.
