Global Tuberculosis Report 2021

Publications - Released in 2021

The World Health Organization (WHO) has published a global TB report every year since 1997. The purpose of the report is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of the status of the TB epidemic and progress in the response at global, regional and national levels, in the context of global commitments, strategies and targets.

The 2020 report included a provisional assessment of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on TB services, TB disease burden and progress towards targets. This 2021 edition provides updated, more definitive and more wide-ranging results.
