We’ll commemorate the day Pr. Robert Koch announced to the scientific community that he had discovered the cause of tuberculosis: the tuberculous bacillus. It was in Berlin, in March 24th, 1882. From then, lots of things have changed, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Sunday will be the day to aware people about TB, to explain what is the TB infection, how tuberculosis spread, how is the TB disease course, which are the available treatments, what can and what should be done.
We are not going to list the events organized everywhere, because the STOPTB Partnership has already done a very good job! Please visit their website to see what is done near to you! Participate! Be engaged! Spread the word!
Happy World TB day!
