World TB Day
World TB Day is right around the corner on Tuesday March 24, 2015! World TB Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness about tuberculosis and galvanize support for greater U.S. investment in the fight against this neglected disease. This year, let’s raise our voices even louder to help reach, treat, and cure everyone.
There are many World TB Day activities that you can invite your members of Congress to participate in or that you can take part in yourself. Check out our list of events below.
