- This is the fourth surveillance report launched jointly by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the WHO Regional Office for Europe (WHO/Europe) following on from reports under the EuroTB project, established in 1996.

Trends in notification of childhood TB indicate that transmission to children still occurs within the borders of the EU, also in low-incidence countries. Preventing TB infection in children is the foundation to achieving a TB-free generation in the EU/EEA._______________________________________________________________________________________________________
