World TB Day - 24 March 2019

TB Day

World TB Day, falling on 24 March each year, is designed to build public awareness that tuberculosis today remains an epidemic in much of the world, causing the deaths of nearly one-and-a-half million people each year, mostly in developing countries.

This year the theme is 'It's Time'.

Following the historic UN High-Level Meeting on TB last September 2018 in New York, the theme will ensure the world is reminded of the commitments made and the timely need for action in scale up, research, funding, human rights and accountability.
