Sweden has chosen to reduce support for the fight against one of the world's deadliest diseases - tuberculosis. With a looming pandemic of multi-resistant tuberculosis, this is difficult to understand. The World Health Organization aims to reduce the number of tuberculosis patients by 90 percent by 2035, but then large research investments and new forms of collaboration are required. It is written by Gunilla Källenius, Knut Lönnroth and Claes Ånstrand.

Every year, 9 million people get tuberculosis. During the same period, 1,5 million people die from the disease. Research on new diagnostic methods and drugs is not a priority. Large pharmaceutical companies tend to pull out instead of investing more. Sweden has all the prerequisites to become the strong voice needed to prioritize the fight against tuberculosis. That is the opinion of Judith Bruchfeld, Gunilla Källenius, Knut Lönnroth, Olle Stendahl, Claes Ånstrand and Johan Mast.
