In 2019, roughly 10 million people developed Tuberculosis (TB) globally and 1.4 million of them died, which makes it one of the top 10 causes of death globally.1 By 2030, the targets are clear: 90% reduction in the number of TB deaths and an 80% reduction in the TB incidence rate (new cases per 100 000 population per year), compared with levels in 2015. 1
 
Laboratory diagnostics continue to play a key role in the strategy to fight TB, and an estimated 60 million lives were saved through TB treatment between 2000 and 2019.1 In this webinar, you will learn how microbiology laboratories play an increasingly important role in the fight against TB.
 
Key Topics:
  • The fundamental science of the TB disease (introduction & impact)
  • The importance of laboratory diagnostics in the fight against TB
  • The STOP TB Partnership
  • The ongoing work of the European Society of Mycobacteriology
