The global commitment to end tuberculosis (TB) is outlined in the End TB Strategy that targets a reduction in tuberculosis deaths by up to 90% in 2030 compared to 2015, a reduction in the incidence of tuberculosis by 80% in 2035 compared to 2015, and no household experiences catastrophic costs due to TB in 2030. In the End TB Strategy, it is emphasized that the target is expected to be achieved with innovation, such as developing vaccines and new TB drugs with short-term regiments.
The Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia developed a roadmap for tuberculosis elimination in Indonesia for 2020-2030, which included a target to reduce tuberculosis incidence to 65 cases per 100,000 population by 2030. The target towards the achievement of the early stage of tuberculosis elimination in Indonesia by 2030 is optimized by tuberculosis epidemiological modeling using the Tuberculosis Impact Model and Estimates (TIME) device.
