Welcome to Tuberculosis Wiki![edit | edit source]

Tuberculosis (TB) is the second-deadliest infectious disease in the world, killing 1.3 million people every year. Even though tuberculosis has been curable since the mid 20th century, people continue to die of tuberculosis due to global inequities in access to health care.

This wiki covers medical, epidemiological, cultural, and historical aspects of tuberculosis.
