Department of Epidemiology and Clinical Research

The Department of Epidemiology and Clinical Research (DECR) at the Research Institute of Tuberculosis aims to contribute to strengthening tuberculosis (TB) control programmes worldwide through conducting clinical and epidemiological research on TB inside as well as outside Japan. The Tuberculosis Surveillance Center (TSC) is also located within the DECR, where basic and essential data on TB patients nationwide are collected, analysed, and made open to the public through websites and publications.
