Tuberculosis (TB) has continued to be an important public health problem around the world. The map shows the reported number of new and relapse cases in Asian countries, using data deposited with the World Health Organisation. Countries coloured purple (including China) have a larger TB population. The yellow areas are supposed to be having a lower number of cases. The patterns should be interpreted with caution, as a higher number may reflect a better reporting system while a lower number could be a result of poor reporting.
