Although a number of important advances in tuberculosis diagnosis and treatment have been made, further research is required to accelerate progress towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals and the goal of the Stop TB Partnership to eliminate tuberculosis as a global health threat by 2050. The report identifies research priorities for tuberculosis in the following thematic areas: epidemiology and control; health systems and operational research; case-finding and infection control; HIV-associated tuberculosis, vaccines, new drugs and diagnostics; and social science and gender.
