EU TB FACTS
Basic facts on tuberculosis (TB) in the WHO European Region
Overall in 2015 there were an estimated 323 000 new TB cases and relapses in the WHO European Region, with 60 195 cases of TB reported in 30 European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) countries.
Although the EU/EEA notification rate is continuing a long-term decreasing trend, annual rates of decline are still too small to envisage TB elimination in Europe by 2025 and treatment success rates have remained largely unchanged over the past 10 years. One area of particular concern is multidrug-resistant TB and this remains a major challenge for TB control in the WHO European Region.
In 2015 alone, there were 32 000 estimated deaths from tuberculosis (TB) and around 323 000 new TB cases. This means that every day, about 900 people become sick with TB.
Countries in the eastern part of the WHO European Region are most affected by the TB epidemic: 18 high-priority countries for TB control bear 85% of the TB burden and 99% of the multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) burden (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, the Republic of Moldova, Romania, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan).
Although the number of cases in the Region as a whole halved in 2006–2015, the number of new TB cases was almost 8 times higher in high-TB-priority countries than in the rest of the Region.
TB incidence in the Region is among the lowest in the world, but the Region’s burden of MDR-TB is the highest. MDR-TB is one of the key drivers of the TB epidemic in Europe, along with HIV, social determinants and TB risk factors, and limited capacity of health systems.
Technilamp was established over 40 years ago in the gold mining city of Johannesburg, South Africa.
