Tuberculosis surveillance and monitoring in Europe, 2017
This report, the ninth report launched jointly by ECDC and the WHO Regional Office for Europe, presents the latest data on the status of tuberculosis (TB) in Europe.
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.
