World TB Day 2014 
Find TB. Treat TB.
Working together to eliminate TB

 

FROM THE CDC

This World TB Day, we call for further collaboration to find and treat TB. By working together to raise awareness that TB still exists and sharing the personal stories of those people affected by TB we can bring attention to this public health problem. We don't have to fight TB alone; we should partner with others who are also caring for those most at risk for TB such as people with HIV infection or diabetes, and the homeless. Everyone has a role in ensuring that one day TB will be eliminated. We are committed to a world free of TB.

For examples of past World TB Day events, links to planning resources, fact sheets, posters, and other materials that may be of assistance to you in your World TB Day activities, please visit the World TB Day section on the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination website.
