Ending TB in the South-East Asia Region: Regional Strategic Plan 2016-2020
AbstractThe South-East Asia (SEA) Region of WHO accounts for 41% of the global burden of tuberculosis in terms of disease incidence. In 2014, there was an estimated TB prevalence of 5.4 million and incidence of 4 million , and about 460 000 people died due to the disease in the Region. India and Indonesia have among the largest numbers of cases - 23% and 10% of the global total respectively. The SEA Region has a total of 99 000 estimated MDR-TB cases among notified pulmonary TB cases, accounting for approximately 30% of the world's MDR-TB cases among notified pulmonary TB cases in 2014. Six of the 30 high MDR-TB burden countries are in the SEA Region: Bangladesh, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, India, Indonesia, Mynamar and Thailand. An estimated 210 000 cases (5.2%) of the 4 million incident TB cases are HIV-positive. This corresponds to 11 per 100 000 and 5% of all estimated TB incident cases. An estimated 62 000 cases died of HIV-associated TB in 2014. In alignment with the WHO End-TB Strategy, a new Regional Strategic Plan (2016-2020) has now been developed for TB control in the SEA Region with the vision to have a 'Region free of TB' with zero death, disease and suffering and plans. The goal for TB control in the SEA Region is to 'End the TB epidemic in the Region by 2035' by adopting and adapting the vision, milestones and targets as outlined in the Health Assembly resolution WHA67.1. The WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia in coordination with all country offices and national and international partners continues to support all Member States in their efforts to achieve universal health coverage and end the TB epidemic.
