Kenya TB Prevalence Survey 2015-2016

E-mail Print PDF

The last Kenya TB prevalence survey was carried out in 1958-1959 when over 80% of the current population of Kenya were not born. The 2015-2016 nationwide TB survey aims to obtain an accurate estimate of Kenya’s TB burden, determine the existing challenges in accessing TB testing and treatment, and characterize persons identified with TB that may have not been detected by the National TB control program.
