The infectious disease that killed the most people last year is one we’ve heard almost nothing about: tuberculosis. In 2022, it likely claimed 1.4 million lives, more than the total toll of COVID.

Each week, Bjorn Lomborg is writing about the 12 most phenomenal solutions for global development in 20+ newspapers worldwide. You can read his article on tuberculosis in publications including The Australian, National Post (Canada), La Prensa (Nicaragua), The Nation (Kenya), Milenio (Mexico), Tempi (Italy), Portfolio (Hungary), Philippine Daily Inquirer, , Jakarta Post (Indonesia), Jordan Times, Morgunbladid (Iceland), Addis Fortune (Ethiopia).
