Stop TB Partnership launches World TB Day webpage and social media campaign.

1st March 2016 -  Geneva, Switzerland - March is the month when many, many years ago Robert Koch presented his groundbreaking discovery of mycobacterium tuberculosis. March is also the month in which we amplify our efforts to push TB higher on the agendas of decision makers, stakeholders, governments, programs, partners and communities. 

This year, in line with the paradigm shift called for by the Global Plan to End TB 2016-2020, we want to make sure we get a good head start and that we do things differently. This is why we are stepping up our web presence for World TB Day and we have developed a range of online tools for all of us to use.

We will End TB only if we are united, coordinated and if we believe and rely on each other. It is in our power to make the whole month of March 2016 and the day of the 24th March memorable ones.
