Reports on the Epidemiology of TB in Ireland

Enhanced TB notification forms are completed by public health doctors for each case of TB notified. These forms summarise all available clinical, microbiological, histological and epidemiological data. Forms are then collated in the regional departments of public health and entered onto the Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting (CIDR) system. HPSC produces a quarterly TB report using notification data reported by HSE areas to the CIDR system.
