Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major public health concern worldwide. In 2020, it was the 13th leading cause of death and the second leading infectious killer after coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), above HIV/AIDS. In 2020 a total of 1.5 million people died from TB, while about 10 million people are estimated to have suffered from the disease: 5.6 million men, 3.3 million women and 1.1 million children [1].

The ERJ commemorates World TB Day 2022 by publishing relevant articles to contribute to the fight against tuberculosis
