World TB Day

World Tuberculosis (TB) Day is held every year on 24th March. On this date in 1882, the bacterium that causes TB was first discovered. World TB Day has since become a global rallying point to raise awareness of the impacts of TB, as well as challenges and solutions on the journey towards ending TB.

For Results, World TB Day is an annual highlight for our advocacy. TB is a disease of poverty that kills more than 1.5 million people every year, mostly in low-income and middle-income countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
We have the solutions to end TB, all we need is the political will.

We are proud to partner with the Burnet Institute, TB Alliance and QIAGEN to deliver our 2024 World TB Day events.

Our parliamentary event was once again held at 7:30am on Monday 25th March, at the Dame Dorothy Tangney Alcove in Parliament House, Canberra.

This year, we released our Ending TB in Asia and the Pacific snapshot at Parliament House, and welcomed an announcement of $17m for our partners, TB Alliance.
