This week the Stop TB Partnership announced the theme for World TB Day 2019: It’s Time
A simple but powerful theme, it is also a call to action. Following on from the first-ever UN High Level Meeting on TB in September, the launch of the SA TB Caucus, and the 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health, which took place in The Hague in October, it is time to build on the momentum, harness political will and see the end TB in our lifetime.
As The Stop TB Partnership have announced, It’s Time…
- …to keep the promises made at the UN HLM on TB
- …for a world without TB
- …to treat 40 million people affected by TB by 2022
- …to know your TB status
World TB Day takes place on Sunday, 24 March 2019.
