The recent Global Tuberculosis Report by World Health Organisation has stressed that more efforts are needed to prevent, detect, and treat this disease if we are to meet global targets. The report also signalled the need for bold political commitment and increased funding as well. Since Pakistan is also one of the countries bearing the brunt of tuberculosis therefore every effort should be made to end this tuberculosis epidemic as nothing is more important than health of the people. Only words will not do anything until they are followed by actions.
