Abstract

Despite the availability of a cheap and effective treatment, tuberculosis still accounts for millions of cases of active disease and deaths worldwide. The disease disproportionately affects the poorest persons in both high-income and developing countries.1 However, recent advances in diagnostics, drugs, and vaccines and enhanced implementation of existing interventions have increased the prospects for improved clinical care and global tuberculosis control.
