Dear colleague,

Visit SciDev.Net’s new online resource for a snapshot of tuberculosis (TB) today — who it affects, where it might spread in the future and how it can be treated and controlled:

TB has always taken its toll on poor nations, but the way the epidemic is evolving — the growing link between TB and HIV that threatens to overwhelm sub-Saharan Africa, and the drug-resistant strains that are making treatment harder — means that understanding the changing face of the disease is more important than ever.

The collection includes:

* An introduction to TB and our online resource

* Facts & figures on the prevalence of TB in the developing world

* Opinions ­ key stakeholder views on collaboration, treatment and diagnostics

* A feature examining the threat of bovine TB to human health

* Articles ­ all SciDev.Net’s latest TB coverage

* Policy ­ summaries of relevant policy briefs

* Key documents ­ short summaries of significant publications

* Links to key organisations relevant to TB treatment and control

* Definitions ­ a directory of terms used in TB research, treatment and control
