    Global tuberculosis control. WHO report 2001.

    World Health Organization [WHO]

    Geneva, Switzerland, World Health Organization [WHO], 2001. [172] p. (WHO/CDS/TB/2001.287)

    This is the fifth annual report on global TB control, based on case notifications and treatment outcome data supplied by national control programmes to WHO. Six consecutive years of data were used to assess worldwide progress in TB control, focusing on 23 high-incidence countries that account for 80% of all new cases (the TB80 group). The main aim was to assess progress towards 2005 targets for case detection (70%) and treatment success (85%), and to begin to evaluate the epidemiological impact of diagnosing and curing larger numbers of patients. Analysis of progress from 1995 to 1999 included a revision of incidence estimates for all countries in these years, together with projections to 2005. During 2000, a standard data collection form was sent to 211 countries via WHO Regional Offices. The form has three sections which request information about: policy and practice in TB control; the number and types of TB cases notified in 1999; and the outcomes of treatment and retreatment (DOTS areas only) for smear-positive or culture-positive (mainly Europe) cases registered in 1998.
