Prevention and Control. Taiwan CDC had promoted“Mobilization Plan to Halve Tuberculosis Incidence in Ten Years” since Fifteen strategies of “Mobilization Plan to Halve Tuberculosis Incidence in Ten Years”: Case finding campaign; Laboratory capacity improvement; Direct Observe Treatment (DOTs) Hospital Care Enhancement & infection control.

To achieve the World Health Organization target of less than % for industrialized countries, we must intensify tuberculosis control programs in Taiwan. Read more. Publication Authors. Taiwan Centers for Disease Control No.6, Linsen S.

Rd., Jhongjheng District, Taipei CityTaiwan (R.O.C.) MAP TEL:   Although the worldwide incidence of tuberculosis (TB) has been slowly decreasing, the migrant workers remains an important gap for regional TB control.

In Taiwan, the numbers of the migrant workers from countries with high TB incidence increase significantly in past decades and the impact on public health remains unknown.

This study aimed to explore the difference of TB incidence Cited by: 1. Over the last two decades, attempts to control the problem of tuberculosis have become increasingly more complex, as countries adopt and adapt to evolving global TB strategies.

Significant funding has also increased apace, diagnostic possibilities have evolved, and greater attention is being paid to developing broader health systems. Against this background, this book examines tuberculosis. We conducted a case–control study nested within the cohort of 1 million individuals from the health insurance database in Taiwan between and We identified incident cases of tuberculosis through International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes and prescription of antituberculosis drugs.

The Handbook of Global Tuberculosis Control is urgent reading for leadership and staff of non-governmental organizations, government agencies, academic institutions, research centers, hospitals, and potentially businesses with interests in tuberculosis control. Additionally, the book's focus on TB in developing countries will attract a wider.

The project objective was fully achieved and targets for case detection and cure rates for TB were exceeded. The project registered and treated close to million new patients. The mortality rate of tuberculosis in Taiwan in was perpopulation.

Susceptibility data summarized from to reports showed primary resistance ranged from to 12% for isoniazid, to % for rifampin, 1 to 6% for ethambutol, and 4 to 11% for streptomycin. National Tuberculosis Control Program DR. KANUPRIYA CHATURVEDI * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Dr.

In the last 20 years, China ramped up a DOTS (directly observed treatment, short-course)-based tuberculosis (TB) control program with 80% population coverage, achieving the Millennium Development Goal of a 50% reduction in TB prevalence and mortality.

Recently, the World Health Organization developed the End TB Strategy, with an overall goal of a 90% reduction in TB .
