What is this project led by Fair Future about? Tuberculosis in Indonesia. The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated Indonesia a "high burden country" for tuberculosis. There are 22 high-burden countries worldwide, and together they account for about 80 per cent of the world’s tuberculosis infections. Expatriates or frequent travellers who spend a significant amount of time in a high-burden country may benefit from TB screening. Some countries may recommend that infants and children have a BCG vaccination. The annual risk of TB infection in Southeast Asia is 1-2.5%, representing an upward trend for the region. In Indonesia, there are roughly 500,000 new cases of TB annually and 175,000 attributable deaths. Thank you very much Kawan
