IT'S TIME... to get ready for World TB Day 2019!
World TB Day on 24 March 2019 will be one of the highlights of next year and a continuation of the joint efforts to keep TB high on the global and national agenda. After the historic UN High-Level Meeting on TB last September in New York, the World TB Day 2019 theme will ensure the world is reminded of the commitments made and the timely need for action in scale up, research, funding, human rights and accountability.
The World TB Day 2019 theme is: It’s Time...
This versatile theme has a very strong meaning, it is simple to translate into any language and it can easily be adapted to cover any aspect of the TB work that one would like to promote. Here are some examples:
- ...to keep the promises made at the UN High-Level Meeting on TB
- ...for a world without TB
- ...to treat 40 million people affected by TB by 2022
- ...to know your TB status
...and many more!
Early next year the Stop TB Partnership will share a World TB Day toolkit in different languages full of more slogan suggestions, guidelines for interactive campaigns, merchandise and social media, eye-catching graphics and exciting ideas to help you engage with the public and focus everyone’s attention on TB.
