In 2018, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) San Diego Quarantine Station, was notified about an elderly patient with drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB), who needed to complete treatment, but had left the United States to visit family in Tijuana, Mexico, just on the other side of the US land border. CDC partnered Cure TB, San Diego County Tuberculosis Control, and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). It was through this partnership that the patient depicted here, was able to be safely escorted through the San Ysidro Port of Entry, and complete care at his residence in California.
