3.3.2 Tuberculosis Success Rate (TB Cure Rate)
BAGUIO CITY DATA SOURCE: Health Services Office (HSO)
Treatment success rates are calculated from cohort data (outcomes in registered patients) as the proportion of new smear-positive TB cases registered under DOTS in a given year that successfully completed treatment, whether with (“cured”) or without (“treatment completed”) bacteriologic evidence of success.
TB cases detected over the estimated number of such cases during a certain period of time “((Number of new, registered smear-positive (infectious) cases who were cured or who completed a full course of DOTS in a particular period)/(Total number of new, registered smear-positive (infectious) cases in the same period)) * 100”

3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being for all at all ages is essential to sustainable development. Significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality. Major progress has been made on increasing access to clean water and sanitation, reducing malaria, tuberculosis, polio and the spread of HIV/AIDS. However, many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues.
