Wanted: Leaders for a TB-free world

March 24th is World TB Day

Mar 23, 2018

World TB Day, which falls on March 24th each year, is designed to raise public awareness about the devastating health, social and economic consequences of tuberculosis (TB) and to step up efforts to end the global TB epidemic.

The theme of this year — “Wanted: Leaders for a TB-free world” — focuses on building commitment to end TB at all levels from politicians and community leaders, to people affected with TB, civil society advocates, health workers, researchers, doctors or nurses, NGOs and other partners. All can be leaders of efforts to end TB in their own work or terrain.

At the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and the Research Institute of the MUHC, our leaders continuously unite efforts to end TB, here, in labs and clinics, or abroad, in the field, but always with bold ideas. The articles below highlight their most recent ideas and work in the field. Learn more
