Work has shown that those with severe illness or needing inpatient care do not always receive good quality care in African hospitals.

Tuberculosis (TB) remains one of the world’s deadliest communicable diseases. In 2013, an estimated 9.0 million people developed TB and 1.5 million died from the disease, 360 000 of whom were HIV-positive. TB is slowly declining each year and it is estimated that 37 million lives were saved between 2000 and 2013 through effective diagnosis and treatment.
TB is present in all regions of the world and the Global Tuberculosis Report 2014 includes data compiled from 202 countries and territories. This year’s report shows higher global totals for new TB cases and deaths in 2013 than previously, reflecting use of increased and improved national data.
