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.
