In 2014 the Global Burden of Disease published an alternative set of estimates for TB mortality and incidence in the Lancet, suggesting that the global burden and trends were different from those estimated by WHO. Who is right, or less wrong? How should one go about making such estimates, and how should methods and results be described?
