I would highly encourage you to take part in this conference, which is intended to provide an international platform for discussion and exchange of ideas on tuberculosis (TB). TB is the leading killer from a single infectious disease worldwide and drug-resistant TB is now threatening to erode all prior gains in global TB control. Indeed, TB is a real health threat for every major medical subspecialty. The conference targets at assessing challenges and achievements related to TB epidemiology in countries that struggle with a high TB caseload and drug resistance. I believe the conference will be of value to health care providers, public health stakeholders and scientists alike.
