Drug resistance and an increase in the number of HIV/AIDS cases have "led to the re-emergence of tuberculosis as a major health threat in Indonesia, according to health experts," the Jakarta Post reports. "According to the Health Ministry, there were more than 520,000 cases of tuberculosis a year in Indonesia, resulting in more than 90,000 deaths. ... According to the national prevalence survey for 2006-2008, from 2 percent to 15 percent of all Indonesian tuberculosis patients also had HIV," the newspaper writes. The article includes quotes by several microbiologists and the Health Ministry's national TB program director (12/14).
