On the occasion of the 29th World Tuberculosis (TB) Day, Chinese health authorities have highlighted significant advancements in the prevention and control of the disease. Since 2012, there has been a notable 25% reduction in TB incidences in China, with a commendable 90% cure rate for TB patients, reflecting the country's dedication to combating the disease.

In response to the issue, China has introduced various measures aimed at enhancing TB prevention and ensuring effective treatment. Funding allocated by the central government for TB-related work has substantially increased from 40 million yuan in 2001 to 1.27 billion yuan in 2023. Moreover, efforts have been made to alleviate the financial burden on TB patients by offering free first-line anti-tuberculosis medicine and deducting treatment fees.

Health experts in China stress the importance of improving the efficiency of TB treatment to address challenges such as the long medication period and drug resistance. Prominent figures such as Zhang Wenhong advocate for shortening the course of treatment to enhance the eradication of TB. A research team is actively exploring ways to reduce the treatment duration for drug-resistant tuberculosis from two years to a shorter period of six-to-nine months. Additionally, there is a growing emphasis on the development of new TB medicines with fewer side effects to enhance patient adherence to treatment.

Ding Sheng, the director of the Global Health Drug Discovery Institute in Beijing, underlines the necessity of creating TB medicines that are easy to apply and have minimal side effects to improve patient compliance. The institute is collaborating with domestic and international partners, as well as medical institutions, to advance the research and development of TB medicines. These initiatives underline China's commitment to addressing TB and advancing the field of tuberculosis prevention and control.
