Global Tuberculosis Control 2009
Epidemiology, Strategy, Financing
- World Health Organization (WHO)
This report presents WHO's latest assessment of the epidemiological burden of TB (numbers of cases and deaths), as well as progress towards the 2015 targets for global TB control that have been established within the content of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Global Tuberculosis Control includes a thorough analysis of implementation and financing of the WHO's Stop TB Strategy and the Stop TB Partnership's Global Plan to Stop TB. In combination, it is these two strategies that have set out how TB control needs to be implemented and funded to achieve 2015 targets.
The report gives particular attention to the period 2006-2009, but selected epidemiological, implementation and financial data are presented for previous years as well.
