World TB Day 2024 Social Media Toolkit | #YesWeCanEndTB

World TB Day is observed annually on March 24th to raise awareness about tuberculosis (TB), a leading cause of infectious disease death worldwide. The entire month of March is now seen as an opportunity to highlight the efforts made to prevent, diagnose, and treat TB, as well as to call for increased action to eliminate the disease globally.


Tuberculosis is a global disease, found in every country in the world, and is one of the leading causes of infectious disease death worldwide.

10 million people fall ill from TB and nearly 1.5 million people die every year.

TB is a preventable and curable disease. Ending TB requires a multifaceted approach, including advancing the development of tools for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care.

We saw the world come together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. To also see a world without TB requires political will, resources, and global funding to support the research, development, and implementation of effective strategies. With sustained efforts from governments and the international community, and by working together, we can #endTB.

TB on a Global Stage

Prioritizing and investing in the research and development for new TB tools can lead to faster, more effective innovations and treatments. This can help improve patient outcomes and reduce transmission of the disease, particularly drug-resistant forms of TB.

As we prepare for the United Nations High-Level Meeting on Antimicrobial Resistance (UNHLM on AMR) later this year, we must continue to raise awareness for TB.

Drug-resistant TB accounts for about 1 in 3 deaths from antimicrobial-resistant infections.

TB must be part of the conversation when the world's attention turns to AMR in September.
