The Bureau of Public Health Clinics (BPHC) houses the Tuberculosis (TB) Chest Clinics and the Sexual Health Clinics (SHC). TB clinics play an integral role in the prevention and control of tuberculosis (TB) in New York City while the SHC promotes a healthy community by providing New Yorkers with the resources needed to make informed and empowered sexual health decisions. The TB unit does this by supporting patients through patient education, doing directly observed therapy to ensure treatment success and conducting home visits for patients with difficulties coming to clinic. SHC help to identify and treat STIs, provide STI and HIV Prevention and general sexual health services regardless of ability to pay or immigration status. X-Ray Technicians services (taking radiographic images) are critical in the early diagnosis of patients with infectious tuberculosis. The X-rays they take help to inform doctors diagnoses, decision making, and initiation of appropriate therapy for TB infection and disease.
