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.

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.

"TB is a global problem that needs to be dealt with by the international community," urges Professor Giovanni Battista Migliori, ERS Assembly Head Respiratory Infections and Director of the WHO Collaborating Centre for TB and Lung Disease, Tradate, Italy.

"These cases are offered the limited treatment weapons available in the pre-antibiotic era; that is, good food, fresh air and, perhaps artificial pneumothorax", write Professor Migliori and colleagues.
