Why is the number of TB disease cases increasing every year?

Answer

Every year, more and more people die of TB. Badly funded and operated health services, the spread of HIV/AIDS, and multidrug-resistant TB are contributing to the growing number of cases of TB. Global trade, large numbers of refugees (who are often infected), and fast, easy travel by airplane also contribute to the spread of TB.
