Challenge the world to do more on TB.

Tell the world what you're going to do about it.

Visit to make a World TB Day poster with your own personal message!

In 2013 we enter the second year of the two-year Stop TB in my lifetime World TB Day campaign.

At a time when partners are calling for zero TB deaths, we need to make a stronger statement that the world's failure to stop deaths from TB is an outrage.

TB is airborne and can kill - every day 4000 people lose their lives to TB.

It's curable at low-cost.

But the fight against TB is grossly underfunded.

This year, make your voice heard about what you expect in your lifetime:

  • Zero deaths from TB
  • Universal access to TB care
  • Faster treatment
  • A quick, cheap, low-tech test
  • An effective vaccine
  • A world free of TB

Tell the world what you will do to make it happen.

TB care delivers - it has a proven track record saving lives and growing economies and is one of the world's best buys in health. However only a few countries have ambitious plans for universal TB coverage and just US$ 500 million - 6% of the overall needs for TB care - come from international sources.

Each individual can do his or her part to advocate for increased commitment, visibility and funding for TB care and research.
