Global Tuberculosis Report (2015)
PDF File Size: 3.7 MB | Download   
This global TB report was produced by a core team of 19 people: Laura Anderson, Anna Dean, Dennis Falzon, Katherine Floyd, Inés Garcia Baena, Christopher Gilpin, Philippe Glaziou, Yohhei Hamada, Tom Hiatt, Avinash Kanchar, Irwin Law, Christian Lienhardt, Linh Nguyen, Andrew Siroka, Charalambos Sismanidis, Lana Syed, Hazim Timimi,Wayne van Gemert and Matteo Zignol. The team was led by Katherine Floyd. Overall guidance was provided by the Director of the Global TB Programme, Mario Raviglione. The year 2015 is a watershed moment in the battle against tuberculosis (TB). It marks the deadline for global TB targets set in the context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and is a year of transitions: from the MDGs to a new era of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and from the Stop TB Strategy to the End TB Strategy. It is also two decades since WHO established a global TB monitoring system; since that time, 20 annual rounds of data collection have been completed. Using data from 205 countries and territories, which account for more than 99% of the world’s population, this global TB report documents advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease. It also identifies areas where efforts can be strengthened. The advances are major: TB mortality has fallen 47% since 1990, with nearly all of that improvement taking place since 2000, when the MDGs were set. In all, effective diagnosis and treatment of TB saved an estimated 43 million lives between 2000 and 2014.
