World Tuberculosis (TB) Day March 24, 2023
Yes! We can end TB!
World Tuberculosis (TB) Day helps to raise awareness about the damaging health, social, and economic consequences. Today also serves as a reminder that TB continues to be one of the world’s deadliest infectious diseases. This year, the theme 'Yes! We can end TB!' highlights the global efforts in the fight against tuberculosis, the achievements as well as the challenges to ensure access to prevention and care.
Global commitments to end TB made at the public health level should be kept on track as well as the collective efforts on research needed to identify new methods or improve existing ones on TB diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines. ISID joins the global health community in its commitment to accelerate the progress against this preventable and curable disease.
