TAG's annual Pipeline Reports review the progress in research and development for HIV, TB, and HCV diagnostic, preventive, and treatment innovations. The 2021 Pipeline Report is now available. The TB chapters below are well worth a read as a resource for TB scientific, policy, and advocacy work.

The 2021 TB Treatment Pipeline Report by Lindsay McKenna summarises results from three phase III trials of shorter treatment regimens for drug-resistant TB; and provides an overview of the clinical trials pipeline for new TB drugs and regimens, organised in order of proximity to reaching TB-affected communities.
