A decade ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Council for the Elimination of Tuberculosis (ACET) audaciously called for the elimination of tuberculosis in the United States: The goal was 1 case per million by 2010, with an interim target of 3.5 cases per million by 2000 (1). This call was audacious because at the time, the United States was in the throes of the AIDS epidemic (AIDS being the most potent facilitator of tuberculosis ever known) and was just beginning to recover from its grievous failed exercise of ending federal support for categorical national and state tuberculosis programs (2). Now, on the 10th anniversary of that call, ACET is once again renewing its commitment to elimination of tuberculosis (3).
