“It’s time” becomes the theme of this year’s World Tuberculosis Day

Every year, the World Health Organisation commemorates World Tuberculosis (TB) Day on March 24, to raise awareness among the general public about the disease.

On the same day in 1882, Dr Robert Koch announced that he had discovered the bacterium that causes Tuberculosis. This year, the theme of the World TB Day is “It’s Time”, which highlights the importance of time and fast-tracking the response to save lives.
