Intercountry Workshop on TB Surveillance and Epidemiology
held in the WHO Region for the Western Pacific
Manila, Philippines, 4-7 May 2004
Background Agenda List of participants P ... Download all files A workshop on TB surveillance and epidemiology for selected TB and related programme staff from the WHO Western Pacific Region was held jointly with the Stop TB Department's Tuberculosis Monitoring and Evaluation Team (TME). TME has recently facilitated and funded similar workshops for the African Region (AFR) Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) and the European Region (EUR) of WHO. The aim of these workshops is to strengthen skills in data analysis, making better use of routinely collected information to improve the performance of TB control programmes. more [Back to top] Tuberculosis (TB) is primarily a disease of the respiratory system, and is spread by coughing and sneezing. Each year 2 million people die from this curable disease. On this website you can read about the WHO-recommended TB control strategy, DOTS; plans to improve access to TB treatment; research to improve TB control and to adapt present strategies to deal with new challenges; and studies to assess the impact of TB control worldwide.

tuberculosis Public Safety and Health Topic Page OSHA Withdraws Proposal on Occupational Exposure to tuberculosis. OSHA News Release (2003 world's population is infected with tuberculosis (TB), which kills almost 3 million
U.S. Department of Labor MyOSHA [skip navigational links] Search Advanced Search A-Z Index Safety and Health Topics: Tuberculosis In Focus Nearly one-third of the world's population is infected with Tuberculosis (TB), which kills almost 3 million people per year. TB causes more deaths than any other infectious agent in the world. In the mid-1980s, a resurgence of outbreaks in the United States brought renewed attention to TB. An increase in high risk, immuno-suppressed individuals, particularly those infected with HIV, has lead to an increase in TB cases. Drug-resistant strains of this deadly disease also contribute to the problem. In 1990, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that nursing home employees are three times more likely to contract TB than any other group of employed adults of similar age, race, and sex. The following questions link to references that provide safety and health information relevant to TB in the workplace.

13. Michigan State Sanatorium
History of tuberculosis sanatorium in Michigan, accompanied by vintage postcard images.
Michigan State Sanatorium a.k.a. Howell Tubercular Sanatorium At one time, the facility was a place to "take the cure" and from the notes on the back of these postcards that Sally Witt, the current development representative for the old Sanatorium site, found at an antiquarian book sale, it appears that this process took several months to a year. It also appears that people came from all over the United States to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings and the very capable care they received there. Below is a picture of the Administration Building taken right after its completion in about 1907 by Lyndon's Studio. Apparently these photos were made into post cards so that the patients could keep in touch with their friends and relatives sometimes hundreds of miles away. Opened on the 10th of September in 1907, the facility had an administration building and several "open-air" shacks out behind the building. If you look to the left behind the administration building in the picture above you can see the patient "shacks". These each accommodated ten to twelve persons. The men's facility was opened first and the women's opened in about 1908. Bed rest was the treatment required, usually twenty hours a day with the only exercise being the walk to the dining room. Treatment consisted of this total rest as no drugs were used and of course no surgery was ever considered. The men were allowed playing cards and the women handiwork of any kind but that was about the extent of it.

I'm considered low-risk and have had many negative tests previously.

Pathology of Tuberculosis
Return to the tutorial menu. The images below have file sizes ranging from 50 to 250k.
General Features
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the organism that is the causative agent for tuberculosis (TB). There are other "atypical" mycobacteria such as M. kansasii that may produced a similar clincal and pathologic appearance of disease. M. avium-intracellulare (MAI) seen in immunocompromised hosts (particularly in persons with AIDS) is not primarily a pulmonary infection in terms of its organ distribution (mostly in organs of the mononuclear phagocyte system). Tuberculosis is becoming a world-wide problem. War, famine, homelessness, and a lack of medical care all contribute to the increasing incidence of tuberculosis among disadvantaged persons. Since TB is easily transmissible between persons, then the increase in TB in any segment of the population represents a threat to all segments of the population. This means that it is important to institute and maintain appropriate public health measures, including screening, vaccination (where deemed of value), and treatment. A laxity of public health measures will contribute to an increase in cases. Failure of adequate treatment promotes the development of resistant strains of tuberculosis.
Patterns of Infection
There are two major patterns of disease with TB:
  • Primary tuberculosis: seen as an initial infection, usually in children. The initial focus of infection is a small subpleural granuloma accompanied by granulomatous hilar lymph node infection. Together, these make up the Ghon complex. In nearly all cases, these granulomas resolve and there is no further spread of the infection.
