The UCL Institute for Global Health is marking World TB Day with a meeting that addresses tuberculosis as a challenge to London and UK health services and sets it in a global context, with the launch of Tuberculosis and TB/HIV; Controversies and unanswered questions, a Journal of Infectious Diseases special supplement edited by Professor Ali Zumla (UCL Centre for Clinical Microbiology) and Marco Schito (National Institutes of Health, USA).

The introductory session includes presentations from NHS London and UCL researchers, and will focus on local initiatives to combat tuberculosis. Most of the day will be devoted to presentations by the lead authors from the JID supplement, which addresses the key issues in TB control today with presentations on drug development, clinical trials, diagnosis and biomarkers, epidemiology, immunology and paediatric tuberculosis.

The meeting will be of interest to scientists, clinicians and students. The conference is free to attend but registration is required.
