The Centre for Tuberculosis (CTB) was established in 2012. In line with the mandate of the NICD, the CTB conducts laboratory-based public health surveillance of TB in South Africa. It continues to serve as a National TB reference laboratory (NTBRL) and was endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a supranational reference laboratory in 2016. The CTB assisted in developing the WHO TB Policies & Guidelines.Electronic notification of TB cases can be done via the NMC APP.
