Description
Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease of global public health significance, with an estimated 8.6 million infections and 1.3 million deaths in 2012 alone. While several countries around the world will achieve the TB prevalence, incidence and mortality targets set out in the 2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a lot remains to be done. Regions such as Africa and Europe are not on track to achieve some of the MDG TB targets, and multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) infections remain an alarming cause for concern.
