Tuberculosis: Local and global

23 March 2012


UCL World TB Day 2012

To mark World TB Day 2012 the UCL Institute for Global Health held a meeting to address tuberculosis as a challenge to London and UK health services and set it out in a global context. The meeting also marked 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 included presentations from NHS London and UCL researchers, focusing on local initiatives to combat tuberculosis with most of the day devoted to presentations by the lead authors from the JID supplement that addressed the key issues in TB control today with presentations on drug development, clinical trials, diagnosis and biomarkers, epidemiology immunology and paediatric tuberculosis.
