AbstractAbstract AbstractSummary PDFSupplementary Material
The incidence and mortality rates of tuberculosis (TB) in the Republic of Korea are 77 and 5.2 per 100,000 people, respectively (2016), which are the highest among the member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Recently, the incidence of TB among teens and individuals in their 20s in the Republic of Korea decreased significantly. The decrease is largely attributed to the TB screening and contact investigation efforts targeting schools over the past few years. However, the incidence of TB among elderly individuals remains high, and it is even increasing compared to that in the past 10 years. Older individuals account for 42% of all TB cases and 82% of TB-related deaths. The success rate of TB treatment in the Republic of Korea has gradually increased due to various programs, such as control of non-compliance, insurance coverage for TB diagnosis and treatment, and TB public–private mix models. This study suggests that policy makers should focus their efforts on policies that prioritize a significant reduction in the incidence of TB based on the 2nd National Strategic Plan for Tuberculosis Control (2018–2022).
Korean summary
2016년 한국의 결핵 발생률은 인구 10만명당 77명이고, 결핵 사망률은 인구 10만명당 5.2명으로 경제협력개발기구(OECD) 회원국 중 가장 높은 수준이다. 본 연구는 지난 수 십 년간 한국의 결핵 발생률, 유병률 및 사망률의 변화 추이와 그간 한국 정부가 시행해 온 다양한 결핵 관리 정책들을 분석하고 향후 개선방안을 제시하고자 하였다.
