World Tuberculosis Day is commemorated each year on March 24!

World Tuberculosis Day is commemorated each year on March 24 to highlight the devastating health, social and economic impact of TB.
South Africa is among the nations hardest hit by tuberculosis and the infection has remained the leading cause of death in our country for several years.
This year’s theme for the commemoration of World TB Day is ‘Invest in Action to End TB NOW! Get Screened. End Stigma. Save Lives.’
This is a clarion call to every South African to invest in various actions to contribute towards the national efforts to end TB.
Deputy President David Mabuza in his capacity as the Chairperson of the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC), will lead the official commemoration of World TB Day on 24 March 2022 in Barkley West, near Kimberley in the Northern Cape.
