No longer business as usual: Out of the box solutions needed to end TB

In May 2014, the World Health Assembly approved the WHO's new post-2015 global TB strategy and targets for tuberculosis, which aims to achieve the targets for 2035-- 95% decline in TB deaths and 90% decline in TB incidence rate compared with 2015--less than 10 TB cases per 100, 000 population, and the elimination of catastrophic costs for TB-affected households. It is a 20 years approach but also includes the expectation to have by 2025 new revolutionary tools like shorter and better regimens for TB and MDR-TB.
