World Days

On 24 March 1982 – the 100th anniversary of Prof Robert Koch’s discovery of M tuberculosis – The Union proposed that the day be remembered as World TB Day.  Today hundreds of organisations mark World TB Day with public events, street theatre, workshops, seminars and more.  Each year The Union marks this and other lung-health related World Days (asthma, pneumonia, no tobacco and AIDS) with publicity campaigns and other region-based events.
