RESULTS on World TB Day: Connect with us online, on TV, and on Capitol Hill
March 20, 2014
Each year, World Tuberculosis Day is a chance not just to honor the millions of people affected by the age-old lung disease, but to help move the world closer to defeating this deadly epidemic. Here’s how you can get involved with RESULTS this World TB Day.
- On TV: On Tuesday night, March 25, PBS Frontline will air a new documentary sharing the stories of men, women, and children who have come face to face with the tuberculosis epidemic in Swaziland. Check your local listings for “TB Silent Killer,” then join the conversation on Twitter with RESULTS and others during the broadcast. Be sure to tag your tweets with #WorldTBDay and #frontlinePBS.
- Online: Following the PBS broadcast, on Wednesday, March 26 at 3:30pm ET, Frontline will feature Dr. Joanne Carter in an online expert chat on the film and the work ahead to tackle TB. Submit your questions for Joanne and the other experts, then follow along live on Wednesday.
- On Capitol Hill: This week, RESULTS is helping host three TB survivors in DC, who are sharing their stories on and off Capitol Hill and calling for action on tuberculosis. Tuesday night, we’re honoring three members of Congress for their leadership on tuberculosis at a public event at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Watch the event live online.
- Around the world: Our colleagues in the ACTION global health partnership and the StopTB Partnership are all taking action this week to help to end TB. Connect with our partners and allies for the latest international information, analysis, and actions.
