TB and diabetes: risks, management and improving outcomes

Last update: 15/03/2017

This World Tuberculosis (TB) Day, March 24 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) is calling for renewed commitments and action in the global fight against TB – one of the world’s top infectious killers. While effective diagnosis and treatment of TB saved an estimated 43 million lives between 2000 and 2014, TB remains one of the world’s biggest threats, with 1.5 million people killed by the disease every year. The WHO End TB Strategy, adopted by the World Health Assembly in 2014, serves as a blueprint for countries to reduce the number of TB deaths, cut new cases and ensure that no family is burdened with catastrophic costs due to TB.1
