GLOBAL TUBERCULOSIS REPORT 2021

GLOBAL TUBERCULOSIS REPORT 2021

Context:

Every year, the WHO Global TB Report provides a comprehensive and current diagnosis of TB, as well as progress in preventing, diagnosing and treating the disease, at international, regional and national levels. This is done in the context of global TB commitments, strategies and targets. The 2021 edition of the report is produced in a new and advanced web format.

About Global Tuberculosis Report 2021:

  • A WHO report entitled ‘Global Tuberculosis Report 2021’ released on October 14, shows that India accounted for 41% total global drop of 1.3 million.
  • This comes at a time when the world is sharing the world's greatest burden of tuberculosis, a contagious disease.
  • The WHO report shows that there has been a global decline in new cases of tuberculosis (TB) in 2020 compared to 2019.
  • After India, Indonesia reported the second-highest decline of 14% in new TB patients, followed by the Philippines (12% decrease) and China (8% decrease).
  • The number of new TB patients worldwide has dropped from 7.1 million in 2019 to 5.8 million by 2020.
  • This is designed to make the content accessible through small (more “bite-sized”) chunks that are easier to read, digest, navigate and use.
  • There is a short and concise PDF report with 30 pages of main content and six short annexes. This is in line with the expanded and more detailed digital content on web pages.
