High risk countries
The incidence of tuberculosis is the estimated number of new and relapse tuberculosis cases arising in a given year, and is expressed as a rate per 100,000 population.
In Queensland, we consider a country with an incidence of above 40 tuberculosis cases per 100 000 people to be a high risk or high burden country.
