The world lit up for TB!

The video featuring these landmarks can be seen here.

For World TB Day this year, the Stop TB Partnership launched the global challenge "Light up the World for TB". The Stop TB Partnership and partner organizations worked together with local authorities all over the world to light up their landmarks in red on 24 March 2017 to show their commitment towards ending TB. The action was very successful with 31 cities in 13 countries lighting up their landmarks in red during the night of World TB Day.

The challenge followed on from the success seen last year when the cities of Barcelona and Rio de Janeiro illuminated key monuments in red.

The Stop TB Partnership is extremely grateful to the partners who worked together with cities to accomplish this and to the local authorities who made this happen.
