Theme for World TB Day 2014 announced

Reach the three million
A TB test, treatment and cure for all

Following discussions and consultation with partners, The Stop TB Partnership has announced the theme for World TB Day 2014.

The theme will be:

Reach the three million
A TB test, treatment and cure for all

As highlighted in the WHO 2013 Global TB Report, three million people are missed
every year by health systems. This has been the case for six years now.
The Partnership believes that no one should be left behind in the fight against TB if we want to move towards a ZERO TB deaths world.

For World TB Day 2014, partners will call for a global effort to find, treat and cure all people with TB and accelerate progress towards the bold goals we expect to see in TB strategies post-2015 and a world with Zero TB deaths, stigma and infections.

For more information on the World TB Day theme, please read the concept note on the World TB Day page.
