Sažetak

Aim: To show the incidence of tuberculosis in the Primorsko-goranska County during a three-year period with a focus on the epidemiological view. Methods: Data used in this paper were collected during 2010, 2011 and 2012 from primary, secondary and tertiary health care levels in the Primorsko-goranska County. Data were collected and analyzed using AZAPOS application, designed for the purpose of monitoring tuberculosis patients, their household members and other contacts through data coming from all levels of health care towards the epidemiology service of Primorsko-goranska County. Results: In the Primorsko- goranska County the lowest incidence rate (13,4/100.000 inhabitants) was recorded in 2010 with 43 new patients. In the following years covered by the analysis, the number of patients grew. In 2011 there were 54 new cases (17.3/100.000 inhabitants), and in 2012 there were 57 new cases of tuberculosis with the observed incidence of 18,3 per 100.000 inhabitants. Tuberculosis was more frequent among men, and more than half of patients belonged to the age groups above 50 years of age. Conclusion: Data on the incidence of tuberculosis in recent years in the region of Primorsko-goranska County undoubtedly points towards the need of improving the multi-sectoral approach in the work of epidemiology service and the need for continued and concerted actions at all health care levels, targeted at timely reporting, detection, treatment and morbidity prevention in accordance with national official guidelines.
