Details

The strategy looks at using the assets that already exist in the NHS and the public health system to:

  • support and strengthen local services in dealing with TB (particularly in areas of high incidence)
  • ensure clear lines of accountability and responsibility
  • provide national support for local action

During the 5 years of the 2015 to 2020 strategy, TB incidence in England declined by 29% – from 11.9 per 100,000 in 2014 (pre-strategy) to 8.4 per 100,000 in 2019. A robust national TB programme structure with multi-disciplinary and multi-agency involvement was created to deliver the strategy, implementing a range of innovations.
