Mid-term: Prevent & Control
In the medium term, our goal is to reach the targets for TB prevention and control set by the international community and guided by the WHO Global Strategy, which aims for a 95% reduction in deaths and a reduction in the global incidence of TB to less than 10 cases per 100.000 populations, all by 2035.

Long-term: Eliminate TB
For the Netherlands, by 2035 we aim to reduce the rate of TB incidence to the elimination target of less than one case per million population. In the long term, KNCV strives for the complete elimination of TB worldwide.
