• Tuberculosis is now the leading cause of death from infectious disease, with 1.3 million deaths per year, not including HIV co-infections.

• Globally, the rate of decline in TB incidence has been slow, at 2 percent per year from 2000 to 2016, mainly due to low case notification. An estimated 4.1 million people with TB have been missed every year and contribute to ongoing transmission. To achieve the milestones set in the End TB Strategy, we must accelerate the rate of reduction to 4-5 percent each year by 2020.
