World TB Day

Wanted: Leaders for a TB-Free World

You can make history.

End TB.

World TB Day is March 24, 2018.

Every year we raise awareness about the Tuberculosis bacteria that was discovered in 1882 by Dr. Robert Koch. TB epidemics continue to exist in many countries around the world. In Canada TB rates have declined over time. TB remains a disease of public health significance.

TB is preventable, treatable and curable.

For more information on TB and Latent tuberculosis screening visit our Tuberculosis section of our website.

If you require screening for school or work please visit our Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Clinic section of our website.
