WHO has published a global TB report every year since 1997. The main aim of the report is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of the TB epidemic, and of progress in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease at global, regional and country levels. This is done in the context of recommended global TB strategies and targets endorsed by WHO’s Member States and broader development goals set by the United Nations. Specific targets set in the End TB Strategy include a 90% reduction in TB deaths and an 80% reduction in TB incidence (new cases per year) by 2030, compared with 2015.
