Excerpt
As many of you know by now, preliminary TB data for 2001 are available. On March 12, Dr. Marisa Moore of the Surveillance and Epidemiology Branch (SEB) of the Division of TB Elimination (DTBE) forwarded to TB Control Officers and DTBE field staff an e-mail containing provisional 2001 data from the national TB surveillance system. As she reported, these data indicate that, in 2001, a total of 15,991 TB cases were reported from the 50 states and the District of Columbia, representing a decrease of 2% from 2000 and 40% from 1992. The case rate in 2001 was 5.6 per 100,000, and the proportion of cases among foreign-born persons was 50%. The 2001 provisional TB case total was included in the March 22, 2002, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) “Notice to the Readers” about World TB Day. With this provisional total, the number of U.S. TB cases has now decreased for the ninth straight year. However, the percentage decline in the number of TB cases is less than it has been. Although data from one year do not constitute a trend, this may be the first sign of stagnation in U.S. TB decreases. As we continue to focus on the goal of eliminating TB in the United States, we must keep in mind that achieving that goal will require not only the ability to rapidly increase resources for local TB control efforts when outbreaks occur, but also the will and resources to combat the devastating impact of the global TB epidemic.
