dc.description.abstractCountries in the WHO South-East Asia (‎SEA)‎ Region have made significant progress towards the TB-related Millennium Development Goals (‎MDGs)‎. The estimated incidence and prevalence of all forms of TB and estimated TB mortality, all continue to show a downward trend. The treatment success rate among new smear-positive pulmonary TB cases has remained above 85% since 2005, and was 88% in 2010. Approximately 40% of the estimated global number of cases occur in the SEA Region (‎based on current estimates)‎ as well as more that one fourth on the MDR-TB burden. The collaboration between TB and HIV control programmes is improving. Many of the constraints to effective implementation of TB control services in Member States relate to underlying weaknesses and under-financing of national health systems in general, many of which are already overstretched in terms of both infrastructure and staffing. To enable continuing scale-up of critical interventions there is an urgent need to sustain current financial commitments and to advocate for additional financial resources.en_US
