Annual Reviews: Making our world tuberculosis free

Image: Annual Reviews: Making our world tuberculosis free

In 1882, Dr. Robert Koch's discovery of the tuberculosis bacillus (TB) astounded the scientific community. Today, a UN Sustainable Goal calls for ending the TB epidemic by 2030. Will history be made in the next 12 years?

In recognition of World TB Day, Annual Reviews has curated a special collection of articles. Collectively, these authoritative resources have been cited more than 2,300 times.* Make your mark to #EndTB, and stay informed by Annual Reviews' experts. Multidisciplinary topics include genetics, immunity, drug resistance, the anthropological history of epidemics, and more.

The Annual Review of Public Health is Open Access, thanks to support provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to increase openness and transparency in research.
