Public health has made great strides in reducing the incidence of infectious diseases. Yet, today’s challenges are broader and more complex than ever. While the globalized world has provided increased opportunities for the emergence and spread of infectious diseases, there have been significant advances toward their control.

This Webinar will examine the burden of infectious diseases nationally and internationally with a special emphasis on tuberculosis.
