Any information system which provides reliable data serves to improve epidemiological surveillance even though it may have been designed for a different purpose. It is all a matter of knowing the limitations and unique aspects thereof. The MBDS provides information of epidemiological interest which is not included in the Compulsory Notifiable Disease reports. Using the capture-recapture method is one alternative for estimating truer pulmonary tuberculosis rates.
