Every year nine million people get sick with TB and three million do not receive the diagnosis and care they need.

This World TB Day, we call for a global effort to find, treat, and cure the three million and achieve progress towards zero TB deaths, infections, suffering and stigma.

RESULTS UK, Target TB, the All Party Parliamentary Group on Global TB, and Stop TB UK, invite you to join them in Parliament on World TB Day, March 24th, to learn about the UK response to this global killer, and to raise our voices for change.
