World Tuberculosis Day 2020

24 March 2020

The WHO European Region will mark World Tuberculosis Day 2020 with a focus on the essential role of nurses in ending this preventable and treatable disease that still affects some 275 000 people each year in the Region. The day will be used to raise awareness and inspire action to finally end tuberculosis (TB).

Nurses are on the frontline of the fight against TB as they help patients get through long and difficult courses of treatment. They also play an essential role as communicators and health promoters, helping to cut through stigma and raise awareness of how to prevent TB.
