World TB Day is March 24! CDC efforts to find, cure, and prevent TB

World Tuberculosis (TB) Day March 24, 2018

CDC joins organizations from around the world to accelerate global progress in the fight against TB
Every March 24, CDC’s Division of Global HIV & TB (DGHT) recognizes World Tuberculosis (TB) Day – an important moment for the global community to come together to renew our commitment to ending TB.
We can find, cure and prevent TB globally. At CDC, we are helping to drive progress against TB, bringing to bear a combination of scientific expertise and on-the-ground experience in diagnosing, curing and preventing TB worldwide. We’re on the frontlines in more than 25 high TB burden countries working with partner governments and helping sustain country efforts.
