Saturday March 24th was World Tuberculosis Day and we’d like to thank our citizen advocates for their hard work Turning the World Red and standing in solidarity with the millions of people who are affected by tuberculosis globally. Tuberculosis is the world’s most infectious killer, claiming 1.7 million lives in 2016 alone. That’s more than HIV and malaria combined. The world agreed to end tuberculosis by 2030 and with coordinated investment and commitment at the highest global level we can reach that goal. We’re getting ready for the High-Level Meeting on Tuberculosis at the United Nations on September 26th 2018 and are calling on our global leaders to commit to bringing this epidemic to an end. This will be the first High-Level Meeting about tuberculosis ever, and we are excited to see the global impact that it will have. As a global community, we can and will put an end to tuberculosis.
