As we commemorate World TB Day each year, it serves as a call to action to continue working towards a future where TB is no longer a threat to public health. Through education, research, and advocacy, progress is being made to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of TB worldwide. By sharing information and highlighting the significance of this day, we can work towards a world where everyone can live without fear of contracting this deadly disease.
