World Tuberculosis Day 2019 - ‘It’s time’

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), TB remains the world’s deadliest infectious killer. Each day, nearly 4,500 people lose their lives to TB and close to 30,000 people fall ill with this preventable and curable disease. Global efforts to combat TB have saved an estimated 54 million lives since the year 2000 and reduced the TB mortality rate by 42%.

Researchers around the world are working hard to develop more effective treatments and prevention measures. In this Elsevier article collection, you can read recent research on TB – the causative bacterium, the disease, its prevention and cure – published in a range of Elsevier’s journals. The articles are free to access until the 20th of June 2019.
