In an interview, Brigitte Gicquel (667668), from the Pasteur Institute, explains why tuberculosis is such a difficult disease to research and treat. Jose I Figueroa-Munoz & Pilar Ramon-Pardo (733735) discuss some of the challenges of dealing with tuberculosis among deprived communities within wealthier environments.
