The WHO Global TB Control Report for 2003 is out
Click HERE for full report. - the 7th in a series of annual reports on global TB control. It includes data on case notifications and treatment outcomes from all national control programmes that have reported to WHO, together with an analysis of plans, finances, and constraints on DOTS expansion for 22 high-burden countries (HBCs). Eight consecutive years of data are now available to assess progress towards the 2005 global targets for case detection (70%) and treatment success (85%). The number of countries implementing the DOTS strategy increased to 155 (out of 210) in 2001. DOTS programmes notified 2.4 million new TB cases, of which 1.2 million were smear-positive. The global case detection rate increased, but at 32% is still well below the 70% target. Treatment was successful for 82% of patients who started treatment under DOTS in 2000 - close to the 85% target. In the African Region, however, treatment success was substantially below average. Sixteen countries had reached targets for case detection and cure by the end of 2001, including Viet Nam, the only HBC among them.

Tuberculosis (often called TB) is an infectious disease that usually attacks the lungs, but can attack almost any part of the body. Tuberculosis is spread from person to person through the air. When people with TB in their lungs or throat cough, laugh, sneeze, sing, or even talk, the germs that cause TB may be spread into the air. If another person breathes in these germs there is a chance that they will become infected with tuberculosis. Repeated contact is ususally required for infection. It is important to understand that there is a difference between being infected with TB and having TB disease. Someone who is infected with TB has the TB germs, or bacteria, in their body. The body's defenses are protecting them from the germs and they are not sick. Someone with TB disease is sick and can spread the disease to other people. A person with TB disease needs to see a doctor as soon as possible.

The current guideline from our Department of Health (and as endorsed by the WHO) is to request for sputum AFB smears (3X) for all patients who present to us in the local health centers with a history of cough of equal to or greater than three weeks duration. However, due to the big volume of patients coupled with the lack of adequately trained manpower, the present medical technologist reading the smears is chronically overloaded (too many smears to be read - most of which turn out to be negative anyway). Is there a way to "screen out" these negative cases using other variables from the patients history or PE?

      What is Tuberculosis?
      Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease that can damage a person's lungs or other parts of the body and cause serious illness.
      How is TB spread?
      TB is spread when people who have active untreated TB germs in their lungs or throat cough, sneeze or speak, and send their germs into the air. People who breathe these germs into their lungs can become infected. People who breathe in TB germs usually have had very close, day-to-day, contact with someone who has the disease. That's why most people get TB germs from someone they spend a lot of time with, like a family member, friend or close co-worker. You're not likely to get TB from someone coughing in the subway or at a restaurant. It is not spread by dishes, drinking glasses, sheets or clothing.
