About this book

Volume in the UN Millennium Development Library on combatting tuberculosis, which is far more widespread and deadly than is realised in the advanced economies.

From the publisher's announcement:

Nearly 2 million people die each year from TB. However, real progress has been made over the last decade in implementing DOTS - an effective intervention against TB. Investing in Strategies to Reverse the Global Incidence of TB describes the features of DOTS and offers a guide to implementing the system and achieving a universal standard of care based on proper diagnosis, treatment and reporting. Other recommendations include efforts against HIV-related TB and multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB, engaging all care providers and communities in high quality care and developing new diagnostics, drugs and vaccines.
