Building New Relationships on TB Control, One BRICS at a Time

Among the 22 countries considered to have a high burden of tuberculosis (TB), the group of emerging economies known as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) account for at least 60 percent of notified cases. The BRICS are also estimated to account for 60 percent of the world’s cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB).
