Why is Tuberculosis On the Rise Again?

According to experts, global efforts to control tuberculosis have failed and new approaches are needed.

More than 9 million people became infected with the disease last year, leading to 2 million deaths. There is more tuberculosis now than at any other time in history.

According to USA Today:

“For years, the World Health Organization and partners have fought TB largely with a program where health workers watch patients take their drugs -- even though the agency acknowledged in a 2008 report that this treatment program didn't significantly curb TB spread.”
