The Ministry of Health, estimates Uganda’s national tuberculosis (TB) prevalence rate at 253/100,000; an estimated 87,000 TB cases annually. CPAR Uganda’s qualitative investigation into TB, indeed, explored prevalence of TB in Uganda. However, this discussion only covers its findings for Uganda’s Greater Northern Region, the region.
