From: Spatial distribution of people diagnosed with tuberculosis through routine and active case finding: a community-based study in Kampala, Uganda

Fig. 3

Potential implications of geographic-targeted screening. High-risk zones as defined by the facility-based phase tuberculosis notification rates are indicated in purple. Numbers indicate each zone’s rank (from 1 to 15) based on average monthly TB notification rates during the facility-based phase – with no numbers assigned to zones in which no TB cases were diagnosed during that phase. While targeted active case finding at each selected zone may not be feasible for logistical and political reasons, we highlight that the easternmost three of the five high-risk zones are contiguous and within Bukasa parish (parish boundaries are designated in bold). If this area were to be defined as a priority for case finding activities, it would represent 18% of the total population, 23/45 (51%) of facility-based phase TB cases, and 52/128 (40%) of the community phase TB cases. Two zones did not have population available and were excluded from this analysis
