Let’s work together to eliminate TB  Thumbnail

Each year we recognize  World TB Day on March 24 to celebrate the discovery of Mycobacterium  Tuberculosis by Dr. Robert Koch in 1882. World TB Day is our chance to talk about Tuberculosis-  related concerns  and share ideas to support worldwide TB control. TB is a disease spread through the air from one person to another.  While a lot of work has been done to control and cure TB within the US, people still get sick and die from it every year. In fact, according to the World Health Organization,  TB is the top infectious disease killer worldwide. This year the Centers for Disease Control selected  the theme “Find TB. Treat TB. Working together to eliminate TB.” This highlights that it takes an entire community  of people working  together to end the spread of TB disease. It also reveals the sad fact that TB is still a lifethreatening  problem and current efforts to find and treat TB disease  are not enough. A united effort is needed to identify new strategies  to improve testing and treatment options.
