Tuberculosis in the Age of Drug Resistance and HIV

Lessons from South Africa’s Experience

Tuberculosis gets less attention from policymakers than it deserves. This should not be the case in South Africa, where it is the number one killer. This paper outlines South Africa’s tuberculosis problem, its challenges and opportunities, and the role of the United States in tackling this dire threat. It is part of ongoing work at CSIS that focuses on the bilateral health relationship between the United States and South Africa.
