World TB Day Digital Toolkit

This toolkit provides material to help individuals and organisations spread the word about World TB Day.

Each year, on 24 March, World TB Day aims to raise public awareness about the devastating health, social and economic consequences of tuberculosis (TB). After the historic UN High-Level Meeting on TB last September in New York, World TB Day 2019 aims to remind world leaders of the commitments they made and the timely need for action.

The theme of World TB Day 2019 – ‘It’s time’ – calls for action on the commitments, specifically to:

  • scale up access to prevention and treatment;
  • build accountability;
  • ensure sufficient and sustainable financing including for research;
  • promote an end to stigma and discrimination, and 
  • promote an equitable, rights-based and people-centered TB response.

Working together we can use World TB Day to mobilise political and social commitment to end TB.
