WHO report 2005 - Global tuberculosis control: surveillance, planning, financing
Improving case detection and treatment
A total of 199 countries reported to WHO on their strategies for TB control, and on TB case notifications and/or treatment outcomes.
Using surveillance and survey data to update estimates of incidence, we calculate that there were 8.8 million new cases of TB in 2003 (140/100 000 population), of which 3.9 million (62/100 000) were smearpositive and 674 000 (11/100 000) were infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). There were 15.4 million prevalent cases (245/100 000), of which 6.9 million were smear-positive (109/100 000). An estimated 1.7 million people (28/100 000) died from TB in 2003, including those coinfected with HIV (229 000).
