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.

Dr Giovanni Battista Migliori of the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases warned great care would need to be taken to ensure new treatments were not rendered useless by creeping resistance.
"To protect the investment in these drugs, the rational use of antibiotics within strengthened health systems is necessary to avoid the real risk of losing these new agents in a time shorter than that needed to develop them," he wrote in a commentary in the Lancet.

Giovanni Migliori, director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases in Tradate, Italy, suggests that TDR-TB is a deadlier iteration of the highly resistant forms of TB that have been increasingly reported over the past decade. "Totally resistant TB is not new at all," he says.
