The primary aim of this report is to share information from national TB control programmes. The data presented here are supplied largely by programme managers, who have been instrumental in driving much of the work on surveillance, planning, and financing. We thank all of them, and their staff, for their contributions. WHO’s Global TB Monitoring and Surveillance Project is carried out with the financial backing of USAID. The DOTS Expansion Project is supported by funding from the governments of Australia, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and USA. Data for the European Region were collected and validated jointly with EuroTB, a dedicated European TB surveillance network funded by the European Commission. We wish to thank Andrea Infuso and Dennis Falzon of EuroTB for their collaboration. We also thank Pam Baillie, Sue Hobbs, and Keith Wynn for once again doing everything necessary to get this report published by 24 March, World TB Day.
