TB in the United States : a snapshot

  • Description:
    Stalled Progress Underscores Need for Expanded Approach After more than 20 years of progress toward tuberculosis (TB) elimination in the United States, recent data show the annual rate of TB (the number of new cases per 100,000 people) has leveled. The TB rate held steady at approximately 3.0 new cases per 100,000 from 2013 to 2015. An uptick in TB cases was reported in 2015, increasing from 9,406 in 2014 to 9,563 in 2015. The nation’s TB elimination goal is less than one case per 1 million people; however, there were 30 cases per 1 million people in 2015. An expanded approach to address two TB-related conditions – TB disease and latent TB infection – is needed to overcome the nation’s elimination stalemate. tb-in-the-us-a-snapshot.pdf
