Abstract

The comparative analysis of National Tuberculosis Control Programmes (NTPs) in industrialised, low-tuberculosis-incidence countries is limited. Analysis of applied methods, function and accumulated experience contributes to improving global tuberculosis control. A questionnaire addressing NTP surveillance infrastructure and characteristics was completed in 19 industrialised countries, with populations of >3 million and annual notified tuberculosis incidence rates of
