Various healthcare agencies have organized TB awareness campaigns across the U.S. and had difficulty in accessing medicines and products to diagnose the disease and this is due to shortage, supply disruptions, and high costs of the products.

Across the globe, around 3% of all new cases of patients diagnosed with TB have multidrug-resistant tuberculosis and the percentage is more in patients who had already accepted anti-tuberculosis treatment replicating the failure of programs intended to ensure complete cure of patients with tuberculosis. To manage multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is a huge task and that should be accepted by experienced clinicians at centers where there are well-equipped process and with reliable laboratory services and also by implementing the DOTS-Plus strategy.
Asia and Africa provide largely untapped growth avenues for players in the global tuberculosis drugs market
The global spread of tuberculosis cases is tilted predominantly toward low-income and emerging economies countries. The highest prevalence of tuberculosis cases are in Asia, which includes China, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Pakistan contributing 50% of the global tuberculosis burden. Africa is one of the most tuberculosis infested regions globally and unambiguously the sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rate of tuberculosis incidence, with 83 and 290 patients per 100,000, respectively. Tuberculosis cases occur highly between the age group of 15 to 49 year. According to World Health Organization, tuberculosis is projected to yield an annual economic toll of US$12 billion from the income of poor people. Many literature studies explain that the average work time lost by an individual after getting injected by tuberculosis bacteria is around 3–4 months, which further result in a mean lost potential earnings of 20%–30% of the annual household income and over deaths caused by premature tuberculosis deaths the loss of income is ~15 years, estimated by WHO.
