This article is a narrative review of the Tuberculosis (TB) in Nigeria: a 21st century global public health challenge. Complete research articles related to TB which includes prevalence, incidences, risk factors, mode of transmission, comorbidity, challenges of prevention and treatment of TB (such as diagnostic tools and recent medications) were gathered from online database searches and individually critiqued for scientific rigor based on epidemiology of TB. Articles relating to 30 TB were reviewed. All but 15 articles were on prevalence and incidence of TB around the world, seven articles on prevalence and incidences of TB in Sub-Sahara Africa, and eight articles on challenges refer to an obstacle or barriers that prevent tackling or control of TB transmission from occurring. The results of this review provide information to those interested in epidemiological study of infectious diseases like TB. The rehabilitation professionals such as Cardiopulmonary Physiotherapists may use this information to develop the best assessment instrument and non-pharmacological intervention for persons living with TB.
