Unite to End TB!

Each year, we recognize World TB Day on March 24. This annual event commemorates the date in 1882 when Dr. Robert Koch announced his discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacillus that causes tuberculosis (TB).

Too many people in our country and around the world still suffer or die from TB. Anyone can get TB, and our current efforts to find and treat latent TB infection and TB disease are not sufficient. Misdiagnosis of TB still exists, and health care professionals often do not "think TB."

The theme of World TB Day 2017 is “Unite to End TB.” CDC and our domestic and international partners, including the National TB Controllers Association, Stop TB USA, and the global Stop TB Partnership are working together to eliminate this devastating disease. But we need your help. Support our Thunderclap to help raise awareness and support those fighting TB.

Choose “Support with Twitter,” “Support with Facebook,” or "Support with Tumblr" to join in this message with CDC.

For more information about TB, please visit CDC’s Division of Tuberculosis Elimination at https://www.cdc.gov/tb and follow us on Facebook @CDCTB and Twitter @CDC_TB.
