24th of March marks World TB Day and gives us the perfect opportunity to stop and think about where we are in the fight against tuberculosis, a disease which is transmitted by air and does not discriminate. Despite being entirely curable, TB is the world’s most deadly infectious disease, still killing 3 people every minute: 3 mothers, 3 sons, 3 friends...
TB can be tested and cured. However, what we lack to fight TB and make it a disease of the past is attention and funding. We at the Stop TB Partnership are working hard to End TB, but like anyone, we can’t do it alone. So here is what you can do: Help us get the word out!
Let’s speak up to put an end to this preventable and curable disease that can affect any of us and show that partnership, friendship and love really do conquer all. Unite to End TB!
The Red Arrow symbol was developed with the input of thousands of partners in the TB community. It belongs to no single organization, person, tagline, or agenda, but represents our unity against TB. The emblem is in your hands to shape, mold, and give meaning to: join the movement and wear a pin. Tell the people around you about it and convince them to wear one as well.
You can order your Red Arrow pin here.
Contact your elected officials, mayor, community leaders, journalists, sports figures, and other influencers to ask them to join the campaign to #UnitetoEndTB this March 24th. Ask them to promote World TB Day, pledge to End TB, wear a red arrow pin, or change their profile picture with an End TB twibbon.
Over 1000 Parliamentarians around the world have pledged to join the fight against TB through the Global TB Caucus - check if your local parliamentarian has signed up here. If they haven’t, reach out to them to join to the Global TB Caucus here.
