On 29 May 2013 three European tuberculosis (TB) networks met for the first time to discuss TB prevention, control and care in the World Health Organization (WHO) European Region including the European Union (EU). This meeting, which took place in The Hague, the Netherlands, provided a unique opportunity to discuss progress with the implementation of the Berlin Declaration on TB [1], the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) Framework Action Plan to fight tuberculosis in the EU [2,3], and the Consolidated Action Plan to prevent and combat multidrug- and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (M/XDR-TB) in the WHO European Region [4]. Surveillance focal points, laboratory experts, and National TB Programme Managers (NTPs) exchanged lessons learned and discussed next steps to reach the targets defined in the plans.
