Abstrakt

Active transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mt) continues at surprisingly high rates in Denmark. The transmission is particularly observed in specific high risk segments of the population with social problems such as homelessness, alcohol, and/or drug abuse. The patients are infected with the "Danish Cluster 2" Mt outbreak strain, and the transmission is attributed to delayed diagnosis. This situation demands increased focus on early tuberculosis diagnosis, control of transmission, and improved actions calls for prioritising the prevention and control of tuberculosis politically and economically.
