Tuberculosis (TB) by country: rates per 100,000 people

Estimated rate of tuberculosis (TB) per 100,000 people, compiled from World Health Organisation (WHO) data for each country.



The purpose of this document is to help NHS nurses to:

  • check which countries have a high incidence of tuberculosis (TB)
  • decide whether to give a BCG vaccination to children who have arrived in the UK from those countries

TB rates by country in 2013 are available on The National Archives.
