This event will launch a series of manuscripts published in The Lancet describing a comprehensive approach to drive down tuberculosis incidence far faster than current global rates of decline. Authors will present on topics from the manuscripts including active case-finding and prompt initiation of effective TB treatment, treatment of latent TB infection, addressing the biosocial determinants of disease, and using program data to target and monitor interventions. This series will act as a roadmap for TB-epidemic control. Please visit the Lancet TB Series Launch page for more details.
