Abstract

In this paper, a discrete mathematical model is formulated to describe tuberculosis (TB) progression from latent infection to active disease. The data of national TB epidemiology surveys in China are taken to estimate the TB progression rate for children aged 0-14 years. The progression rate obtained in this paper gives a detailed and better estimate of TB progression rate among children.
