Tuberculosis surveillance and monitoring in Europe 2019: 2017 data
AbstractWith just over 280 000 tuberculosis (TB) cases reported in 2017, TB remains a major public health problem in the WHO European Region, including the countries of the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA). This report provides an overview of the latest TB epidemiological situation and is published jointly by the WHO Regional Office for Europe and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). It finds that epidemic patterns and trends vary widely, with the EU/EEA approaching the low incidence level of 10 per 100 000 population while the Region has nine out of 30 countries with the highest multidrug-resistant TB burden in the world. Overall, TB mortality and incidence rates have fallen. Despite the notable progress achieved in the fight against TB, countries still face a variety of challenges in reaching the goal to end the TB epidemic in the Region.

To the west, TB in marginalized populations, such as migrant populations and the elderly, represents a challenge. In addition, political commitment to Directly Observed ...
Fourth meeting of national tuberculosis programme managers : report on a WHO meeting, Helsinki, Finland 8-10 June 2000 Meeting of National Tuberculosis Programme Managers (4th: 2000 : Helsinki, Finland); World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe (EUR/00/5017613, 2000)Tuberculosis (TB) control in parts of Europe requires urgent action. Drug-resistant TB is increasing rapidly. In parts of central and eastern Europe, economic decline, poverty, overcrowded prisons and fractured medical services mean that TB rates are increasing and multidrug-resistant strains are rapidly emerging. There is also a growing epidemic of HIV infection, which is likely to compound TB control problems. This fourth biennial meeting of national tuberculosis programme managers was convened to facilitate the exchange of information on TB ...
