Blog Examines TB Control Efforts In India

In a guest post in the Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog, part of the blog’s coverage leading up to World Tuberculosis Day, Madhukar Pai, an associate professor of epidemiology at McGill University, Montreal, and an associate director of the McGill International TB Centre, “looks at the need for an evolving approach to tuberculosis.” He writes, “Global TB control is unattainable without enhanced control of TB in India,” and he discusses ongoing efforts to control TB in the country. “While these are positive developments, TB control in India is at a critical juncture,” he states, noting “it is clear that India will need to invest in new diagnostics and drugs and scale them up to achieve impact” (Barton, 3/21).
