    Efforts have been ongoing since 1996 to strengthen tuberculosis (TB) surveillance in Europe, starting with the launch of the EuroTB initiative. We present TB surveillance data for the Member States of the European Union (EU) and of the European Economic Area (EEA) for the latest reporting year (2009), highlighting key areas of epidemiological and programmatic focus. Despite a sustained decline of TB notifications at EU/EEA level, several aspects of TB control can still be improved.
