Plan to Stop TB in 18 High-priority Countries in the WHO
European Region, 2007 - 2015


Plan to Stop TB  in 18 countries cover

Tuberculosis (TB) remains an important public health problem worldwide and in the WHO European Region. The high incidence of TB in many countries in the Region, the high level of multidrug-resistant TB, the appearance of extensive drug-resistant TB, the TB outbreaks in the growing pool of people living with HIV and the large population in prisons, and the increasing mobility of people, make TB a regional emergency that calls for effective Region-wide control. The Plan is intended to be a guide for the 18 high-priority countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, the Republic of Moldova, Romania, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan) to use in developing their own long- and short-term national plans on TB, and a reference for the WHO Regional Office for Europe and all other partners involved in fighting TB.

The Plan describes the main challenges, strategies and interventions to control TB these countries.
