World TB Day 2022

We stand in solidarity and resilience in the global fight against COVID-19 and hope the world will emerge from this crisis with a renewed commitment to aggressively anticipate and address global health threats and pandemics. As COVID-19 continues to have an impact on everyday life around the globe, we urge all of our partners and stakeholders, along with the greater TB community, to stay safe and healthy.

TB Alliance is engaging in World TB Day events around the globe.

Many events for World TB Day 2022 are staying virtual, through webinars, meetings, and social media. Find out more about these virtual activities to raise awareness of the TB pandemic and increase support of TB research and funding.
