Description:
In Ireland, national epidemiological data on TB have been collated by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) since 1998. From January 2000, this information has included enhanced surveillance data items based on the minimum dataset reported to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). The resulting National Tuberculosis Surveillance System (NTBSS) was set up following consultation with the eight former health boards and the National TB Advisory Committee. The National TB Advisory Committee was reconvened in October 2004 and new guidelines for TB prevention and control in Ireland were published in April 2010
Keywords:
