Tuberculosis exists in all countries in the world. Some countries have a larger number of people infected with tuberculosis than others. For each 100,000 people, Swaziland has the greatest number (627) of tuberculosis cases in the world. Second is Cambodia (560), followed in third position by Zambia (445), fourth is Djibouti (382), fifth is Indonesia (321), sixth is Mali (295), seventh is Zimbabwe (291), eighth is Kenya (291), ninth is Papua New Guinea (283) and tenth is Gambia (283).

The United States, Sweden and Iceland have one of the lowest populations of tuberculosis at 2 per 100,000.[43] with Canada, Netherlands, Jamaica, Norway, Malta, Granada and Antigua and Barbuda with 3 per 100,000. In North America, countries over 10:100,000 are Mexico (14), Belize (18), Bahamas (19), Panama (28), El Salvador (36), Nicaragua (35), Honduras (46), Guatemala (48), and the worst is the Dominican Republic (88).

Most Western European countries have less than 10 per 100,000 except Spain (14), Estonia (27), Latvia (43), Lithuania (48), while Eastern and Southern European countries have a greater number with Romania (94) being the highest.
