The 2018 Roadmap to ending TB in children and adolescents builds on the 1st edition published in 2013. It incorporates an additional critical population, that of adolescents, who had remained largely overlooked in the fight against TB despite making up 1 in 6 of the world’s people. Spanning the ages of 10–19 years, adolescents are at risk of TB and represent an important population for TB control. Nevertheless few countries provide the adolescent-friendly services young people need to access diagnosis and care. The new Roadmap towards ending tuberculosis in children and adolescents encourages adaptation by countries in accordance with national contexts. It is can be useful for global, regional and national policy-makers; national TB, maternal and child health, HIV and other primary healthcare programs that formulate strategies and plans for health services.
