What's behind the rise of TB?

Last month, the World Health Organization announced that tuberculosis is now the world’s leading infectious disease killer. TB surpassed HIV in 2014. We’ll talk with two experts: attorney Anand Grover, who once worked as UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health and is now a senior advocate on the Supreme Court of India; and Brian Citro, clinical lecturer in Law and associate director of the International Human Rights Clinic at the University of Chicago Law School. Citro was in China recently to research TB outbreaks. They’ll tell us some of the reasons why TB has made a comeback. (Photo: Flickr/jakeknotts)
