Abstract

Three cases of tuberculosis (TB), paradigmatic of the current situation are presented. The world TB situation is described, according to the latest figures from WHO: There is a reduction in Europe and the American regions and an increase more marked in South East Asia, followed closely by the Western Pacific and the African regions. The global increase in cases was 21%. Future perspectives are drawn and the WHO strategies, made public in 1994, are outlined.
