Summary: 

In the past 10 years, the Consortium to Respond Effectively to the AIDS TB Epidemic (CREATE) has done three large trials exploring new strategies to control HIV-related tuberculosis. Recognising that the global strategy for tuberculosis control of a decade ago (mainly directly observed short-course therapy) was insufficient to combat tuberculosis epidemics fuelled by HIV, CREATE undertook bold, community-level trials using cluster randomised designs to assess new interventions that went beyond traditional approaches.
