TB is the deadliest disease

 The latest report by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria shows both progress and challenges in the fight against epidemics, said Peter Sands, Executive Director of the Global Fund. Indicators confirm that if funding is insufficient, the three diseases could return to the forefront of global health. The number of HIV infections has dropped and continues to decline, albeit too slowly.  Malaria cases are on the rise again.  And tuberculosis remains the deadliest of the three pathologies.
