World TB Day Parliamentary Event
To mark World TB Day on March 24, we once again held our annual Parliamentary
Event featuring leading experts on infectious diseases and health security both
within Australia and abroad. An impressive seven MPs and senators rose in Parliament to acknowledge World TB Day and call for greater action on TB prevention and treatment.
“Australia has a very particular role in providing leadership in the Pacific region. 60% of cases of TB are actually occurring on our doorstep in the Asia-Pacific region.”
- The Hon. Warren Entsch MP, Co-Chair of the Australian Tuberculosis Caucus
