The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has published its annual tuberculosis (TB) epidemiological report for 2018.

During 2018, 30 countries in the EU/EEA reported 52,862 TB cases. The number of notifications per 100,000 of the population was 10.2. The overall notification rate continued to fall, as did most country-specific rates. However, the report reveals that the EU/EEA is not currently on-track to reach the goal of ending the TB epidemic by 2030.
