This is the first in a Series of eight papers about tuberculosis. Introduction. Global control of tuberculosis is far from complete. There were 94 million estimated new cases of tuberculosis in ;1, 2 multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis remains a severe threat;3, 4 and HIV continues to fuel the epidemic, especially in Africa.1, 5 With 18 million estimated . Latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) is increasingly recognised as central to programmatic TB activity, and a critical element in global progress towards TB elimination.
Cyprus, through the implementation of adequate TB control interventions and focus on the eight core areas for elimination mentioned above demonstrated that approaching the pre-elimination threshold, at least among nationals, is feasible. However, no published experience is presently available on national TB elimination efforts except from Cyprus. Reprints or correspondence: Dr. Kenneth G.

The strategy for TB elimination involves the implementation of interventions additional to standard TB control measures. It is not only relevant to countries with a low incidence of the disease that are approaching the elimination phase but should also be considered by countries with an intermediate and steadily decreasing TB incidence (i.e.

The aim of interventions in tuberculosis control or elimination strategies is to reduce or eliminate the adverse impact of epidemiological risk factors that promote the progression from one step to the next in the pathogenet-ically based model (figure 2).9 There are four principal interventions at our disposal to accomplish this task (figure 3) Interventions for tuberculosis control and elimination.

TB control efforts in Oman have produced remarkable effects. However, the pre-elimination threshold set at interventions. Instead, these strategies will be influenced by the two effects of moving toward tuberculosis elimination: declining numbers of cases and competition for tuberculosis control resources.
This section discusses the nature of these effects and suggests steps that tuberculosis control programs can take to anticipate and plan for them.

Interventions to tackle tuberculosis among HIV-infected people can occur in the home, community and hospital/clinic. Joint TB/HIV interventions seek to 1) prevent HIV infection, 2) prevent TB, 3) provide care for PLWHA and 4) provide care for people with TB. Modern internationally accepted guidelines for prevention of hospital-acquired TB, based on public health infection control principles, stem from those outlined by WHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.[8,16,32] These guidelines established the primary prevention triad of administrative, environmental, and personal protective.
THERE IS EVIDENCE that the reduction in tuberculosis (TB) mortality observed in Europe and North America before World War II resulted from the successful combination of economic growth and specific public health policies such as patient isolation and the elimination of bovine TB.1, 2 The importance of a combined approach has recently been reinforced by a number of studies.

As outlined throughout this document, the continuation of current. Aims What is the evidence base for the effectiveness of interventions to reduce tuberculosis (TB) incidence in countries which have low TB incidence.
Methods We conducted a systematic review of interventions for TB control and prevention relevant to low TB incidence settings. Tuberculosis Treatment It may sound like a disease of the past, but tuberculosis, or TB, is still a real concern today.
And as the old saying goes, an ounce of. TB-sensitive interventions are interventions that can potentially affect TB epidemiology and control by targeting people at high risk of TB. Finally TB –inclusive are interventions in which having TB or being a member of an household affected by TB is one of the inclusion criteria for the programme, albeit not the only one (Table 1).4) Tuberculosis control strategies.
Tuberculosis control strategies aim to reduce the incidence of new infections with M. tuberculosis complex by identifying sources of infection as rapidly as possible and rendering them noninfectious through curative treatment. 5) Tuberculosis elimination strategies.
Tuberculosis is still one of the most important causes of death worldwide. The Lancet tuberculosis series provided a comprehensive overview of global control efforts and challenges. In this update we review recent progress. With improved control efforts, the world and most regions are on track to achieve the Millennium Development Goal of decreasing tuberculosis .
