Tuberculosis (TB)

Global situation and trends: The absolute number of incident TB cases per year has been falling since 2006 and the incidence rate (per 100 000 population) has been falling by 1.3% per year since 2002. If these trends are sustained, the MDG target that TB incidence should be falling by 2015 will be achieved. Although TB prevalence is falling globally, it is unlikely that the Stop TB Partnership target of a 50% reduction by 2015 compared with 1990 will be reached. TB mortality has fallen by 40% since 1990 and, if the current trend is sustained, the Stop TB Partnership target of a 50% reduction by 2015 compared with 1990 will be met.
