Diapositive1The incidence of TB reported in the DRC in 2013 was 149/100 000 for all forms of TB. The WHO case-detection rate for all forms of tuberculosis was 51% (47-56). The percentage of HIV among TB patients notified in 2013 was 14%. The total number of pulmonary tuberculosis (TBP) cases in 2013 was 113,603. Of these, 71,526 were new smear-positive (SM +) cases, 3,981 were relapses and 1,164 other cases previously treated. Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in TB patients was estimated at 2.6% (0.01-5.5) in new tuberculosis tuberculosis and multidrug-resistant TB patients and at 13% (0.2-28) in the case of reprocessing. (WHO 2014).
It is because of these data not at all glowing about Tuberculosis that HPP-Congo decided to contribute to the fight against TB by implementing the project STOP TB in the RUASHI Mining Area, in Lubumbashi from May 2018 to May 2019.
