World TB Day – Unite to End TB

    World TB Day

    The world TB day, 24th March was marked in the year 1882 when Dr. Robert Koch discovered the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which causes TB. Since 1882, world TB day on 24th March is celebrated to raise public awareness about the devastating consequences of tuberculosis. WHO and the Stop TB Partnership come together and start a campaign for World TB Day 2018, “Wanted: Leaders for a TB Free World. Make History. End TB.” Tuberculosis is one of the top ten infectious diseases which kill 4500 lives every day globally. This campaign is set to educate each and every person about TB around the world and also to encourage the government to take proper action to end TB. We all can join the global movement and can make history by ending TB.
