To study the tuberculin sensitivity patterns among BCG vaccinated and unvaccinated children and possibility of estimating annual risk of tuberculosis infection (ARI) from among BCG vaccinated children, a total of 11,132 children (5,107 aged 0-4 years and 6,025 aged 5-9 years) were tested using ITU of PPD RT23 with Tween 80. Children with BCG scar comprised 68.2% of the test-read population aged 0-4 years and 47.5% of those aged 5-9 years.
