The TB-CRE is delighted to highlight recent publications in Lancet Respiratory Medicine by our researchers for World TB Day last month.
In the grips of a global COVID pandemic, we are all the more aware of the fact that disease is an issue for the global community. Pandemics such as COVID and TB require our attention as no single person remains unaffected by disease so long as any other is suffering. The TB-CRE is privileged to bring together the front line of respiratory and infectious disease specialists across Australia and our region, and we continue to hone our efforts in research, treatment, education, and implementation to control this spread. Below, we bring attention to some of the recent contributions to the TB body of knowledge in commemoration of World TB Day, and the many lives that have been dedicated to fighting the TB pandemic.
