World TB Day is observed each year to raise awareness about Tuberculosis. TB is the leading killer of people living with HIV. The disease is preventable and although some progress has been made, TB remains a destructive epidemic in much of the world. This is the case even though it can be treated for as little as $20 per person. World TB Day is an opportunity to educate ourselves and others about the disease and to work together to end TB.
Results Canada (a GRAN ally) works to increase Canadian funding and support for TB eradication. To recognize World TB Day, go to the RESULTS website and learn a little more about this disease that too often goes hand in hand with HIV/AIDS.
