The disintegration of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1991 had dire consequences for the control of tuberculosis.From 1992, the number of cases reported to WHO continued to decline in western and central European countries (lower series) but increased steeplyin the newly independent states (upper series). This resurgence was probably due to failures in tuberculosis control, but also to other biological, socialand economic factors influencing transmission of infection and susceptibility to disease (see Section 1.8.2). The cover image shows the bifurcation inEuropean case notifications layered on a colour-saturated image of stains used in sputum-smear microscopy, including carbol fuchsin and methyleneblue.Designed by minimum graphicsPrinted in Switzerland
