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 EuroTB. 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. This report presents an epidemiological review of all TB cases notified in 2005. Data for 2005 have been validated and updated to include information relating to treatment outcome. Provisional data for 2006 are presented in Appendix 1.
