Global health and TB care and prevention have entered a new era. With the adoption of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to succeed the 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), new impetus has been given to integrating health and development. The introduction of the SDGs will help shape collaborative efforts to improve health outcomes generally, and TB burden specifically, over the next 15 years. The present special issue of Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene focuses on the intersection between the End TB Strategy and the SDGs, with a particular emphasis on health in all policies and a global effort for TB control.
