To evaluate the importance of governance in controlling tuberculosis (TB), we explored the relationship between recipient countries' governance and TB control outcome. Using OECD statistics, World Development Indicators dataset, and Worldwide Governance Indicators database, we tested the role of governance in 117 developing countries from 2002 to 2014 in terms of TB control. Results show that the current level of good governance and its accumulated stock over time are keys to improving the effectiveness of foreign aid in reducing the incidence of TB.
