The IJTLD on World TB Day

Published on


By commemorating World TB Day on 24th March, we help to raise awareness about the devastating impact of TB, which remains one of the world’s deadliest infectious diseases.


IJTLD new cover design

We believe we will only make progress in ending TB if we are led by the science – and if we communicate new knowledge clearly and effectively. We wanted to use this occasion to highlight selected recent papers published in the IJTLD – and invite you to join the growing audience of researchers, clinicians and healthcare workers reading the journal.
