And those are eight main areas," says Giovanni Batista Migliori, head of the European Respiratory Society and director of the WHO Collaborating Center for Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases.
Migliori says the eight key interventions include increased funding to screen for active and silent TB infection in high risk groups, such as people with HIV, residents of impoverished communities and migrants from neighboring countries.
In addition, he says the governments should invest in research into new tools to rapidly identify and treat tuberculosis, including multi-drug resistant strains.
Migliori says there's a strong motivation for low-burden countries to try to eliminate TB.
"There are several studies showing that the treatment and prevention of tuberculosis is cost-effective. So, that the society costs due to tuberculosis are much higher than the investment needed to prevent them [the disease]," he said.
Migliori says a renewed push to eliminate TB is needed so a resurgence of a preventable and treatable disease does not occur in low-burden countries.
