Doctor giving man a shot
Strengthened by the Boston Public Health Commission’s two hundred years of leadership in public health, our Infectious Disease Bureau strives to reduce the impact of infectious diseases, prevent morbidity associated with these diseases, and create healthier lives for the residents of Boston.
Work within the Infectious Disease Bureau includes disease surveillance, investigation of cases and outbreaks, funding a continuum of HIV/AIDS-related education and care through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act, community and provider education related to other communicable diseases, and the operation of a tuberculosis (TB) clinic.
From sexually transmitted infections to influenza and West Nile Virus, we provide a wealth of information related to preventing and treating infectious diseases, and we hope you’ll take advantage of the resources offered here.
