TB joins HIV as the world's most deadly infectious disease

The latest report from WHO released this week shows that TB now joins HIV as the world's most deadly infectious disease.

Norwegian researchers, together with leading European institutions, as part of the Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative (TBVI) are meeting in Oslo to meet the urgent need for an improved TB vaccine which is critical for the control of this devastating epidemic.

Norway has and is contributing to the global effort to find new tools to control TB which includes new drugs, new diagnostic tests and new vaccines, through the Global Fund, WHO, GAVI and TBVI, as well as direct support for Norwegian research through the GLOBVAC programme at the Research Council.
