New TB infections

What does it mean ?

Tuberculosis (TB) incidence is the estimated number of new and relapse TB cases - specifically all forms of TB, including cases in people living with HIV infection - that arise in a specific year, expressed as a rate per 100,000 population.

Why does it matter ?

The rate of TB incidence is an indicator to monitor reductions in the number of cases of disease burden as part of the End TB Strategy, endorsed by the World Health Assembly in May 2014. Notifications of cases to national authorities are a good proxy for TB incidence in countries where there is little under-reporting of detected cases and where few cases go undiagnosed. This is an indicator for monitoring Sustainable Development Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages; Target 3.3: By 2030, end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases

How is it collected ?

The preferred sources of data are high quality TB surveillance system s linked to routine facility information systems. Other possible sources of data are population-based health surveys with TB diagnostic testing.

Note that denominator excludes patients found to have drug-resistant TB and placed on second-line treatment.

More information on calculations

Estimates through direct measurement require high-quality surveillance systems (where under-reporting is rare) and strong health systems (where under-diagnosis is rare). Alternatively, indirect estimates are measured using notification data and estimates of levels of under-reporting and under-diagnosis.
