Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading killer of people in the world and a major cause of deaths related to antimicrobial resistance. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), more than 10.4 million TB cases were reported in 2017. Among them, 1.7 million deaths were reported. Epidemiological studies show that 95% of the cases are reported in countries with a low GDP (Gross Domestic Product). Even if TB is almost eradicated in Europe, it remains a major public health issue in most parts of the world.
