This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Despite turning away a World Bank credit involving the mandatory purchase of clinical analysis equipment and antituberculosis medicines, Russia has seems to have its tuberculosis problem under control. The government says that the antituberculosis programme initiated in 1998 has helped reduce the incidence of TB from 90.7 cases per 100,000 of the population in 2000 to 87.3 per 100,000 in 2001. Mortality is down some 20-25% this year. It attributes much of its success to testing during health checks.
