Abstract

In this Miniperspective we broadly cover the recent developments and strategies that are being adopted globally in the battle to urgently discover and develop new drugs to treat tuberculosis (TB). It highlights the impact and outcomes of recent nongovernment organizations (NGO) and academic research consortia that have made a significant impact in recent years in the field, providing the reader with an insight into the overall status of TB drug discovery and development while illustrating the current strategies and directions that are currently being adopted to find new drugs to control the disease.
