[Comment] Sex-disaggregated tuberculosis data call for gender-equitable tuberculosis control

The call for more gender-equitable tuberculosis programming, informed by systematically collected and analysed sex-disaggregated and age-disaggregated data, has intensified in recent years.1,2 Gender-equitable programming purposefully addresses inequities that are strongly affected by cultural and socially defined expectations, roles, responsibilities, norms, and power relationships based on sex, gender identity, or gender expression. For tuberculosis programmes, this means examining the intersectional gender context driving poor tuberculosis outcomes for men, women, and non-binary individuals (of all gender identities) and creating evidence-based strategies to address differential disease risk and service utilisation.
