Expected Reductions in the Number of TB Cases in Kenya over 10 Years

Source: Currie et al. 2003.

Note: TLTI = treatment of latent TB infection; HAART = highly active antiretroviral therapy. Reductions (±95 percent CL) based on increase in coverage of each intervention by 1 percent over present values (i.e., 50 percent case detection, 70 percent cure, zero otherwise) and on stabilization of HIV prevalence at the estimated value of 14 percent among adults age 15 to 49.
