ABSTRACT

Although there was a decline in the reported cases of tuberculosis (TB) since 2011, Korea still has the largest prevalence among OECD countries. In 2015, Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) provided guidance on TB room and TB control indicators. However, there has been no evaluation of compliance to the basic management principles of TB rooms. For national TB control, the central government should identify and evaluate the actual condition of TB rooms. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether or not the principles of TB rooms are well maintained in public health centers nationwide in Korea. In addition, based on the results of the survey, we provided a list of evaluation indicators for TB rooms. It is expected that this study could contribute to improvement of TB control in Korea, which builds the fundamental basis for community health promotion.
