[Editorial] Unite to end tuberculosis

March 24 marks World TB Day. This year, the theme is “Unite to end tuberculosis”. WHO calls on governments, civil society, and the private sector to unite to end the tuberculosis epidemic—a much needed approach to tackle this deadliest of diseases. Although 43 million lives were saved through effective diagnosis and treatment between 2000 and 2014, more than 9 million cases of tuberculosis and 1·5 million deaths (0·4 million deaths in HIV-positive individuals) occur annually.
