Ranking 7th in reported TB cases, South Africa is among the 22 high-burden countries targeted as part of the World Health Organisation's Stop TB Initiative. In 2002, 224 420 TB cases were reported. Of these, 182 583 were pulmonary TB cases, of which 98 800 cases were new infectious cases. The incidence rate in 2002 was 494 per 100 000 population.
