The data was taken from routine reports of National Control Program. Results: The database used in this study include a total of 694 cases, with 528 incidence cases (76.1%); 530 cases were patients with pulmonary tuberculosis, 82.1% of them were smear positive. The incidence decreased from 208.96 to 187.05/100,000 inhabitants. The treatment outcomes between 2000 and 2003 were 427 completed (87.5%), 27 defaulted (5.5%), 13 failed (2.7%) and 21 dead during the treatment (4.3%).
