This Podcast features Dr M Sunil Kumar, State Tuberculosis Officer, Kerala, who is among the LEADERS featured in #endTBdialogues - a special CNS series, presenting insightful and thought-provoking interviews with leaders to accelerate progress towardsending TB.

Launched in the lead up to the 50th Union World Conference on Lung Health in October 2019, this #endTBdialogues series underpins the URGENCY to step up the fight against the epidemic.

#EndTBdialogues feature conversations with those who have spent years in fighting the world's top infectious killer disease. Business as usual will fail us in meeting the #endTB target by 2030.
