The Stop TB Partnership Secretariat commends all of our partners for organizing a successful World TB Day this year.


This year, events covered a variety of issues including frontline TB care providers, patient and TB-affected communities, TB/HIV, multidrug-resistant TB, community based DOTS, TB and poverty, public-private partnerships and business initiatives.

Activities were as diverse as they were numerous and included media events, publicity campaigns in television, radio and press, fundraisers, theater and musical events, photography, poster and art competitions, special events for TB ambassadors, film showings, educational programmes, trainings, seminars, marches and rallies.

Congratulations to all involved!
