Globally, progress in meeting the syndemic challenge of poverty and tuberculosis has been reversed due to a combination of political failures, economic instability and the COVID-19 pandemic. This talk details the experiences of people living with tuberculosis in London as described in the Lancet’s 2022 Wakley Prize winning essay, highlighting the reality of health inequalities at home.
