Tuberculosis (TB)

WHO report 2008
Global tuberculosis control

2.1 Data reported to WHO in 2007

The data that were reported to WHO in 2007 are summarized in Table 2.3 and Table 2.4. Reporting was best for questions about the existence and content of national strategic plans for TB control, ACSM and community TB care. Reporting was least complete for questions about collaborative TB/HIV activities that aim to reduce the burden of TB in HIV-positive people (intensified TB case-finding and provision of isoniazid preventive therapy, or IPT), TB control for special groups and populations, and PPM. Among the 22 HBCs, most of the data that were requested were provided.
