February 22, 2023 – The Stop TB Partnership today is releasing the campaign toolkit for this year’s World TB Day, 24 March 2023 “Yes! We Can End TB.” The theme brings attention to tuberculosis (TB) and our collective power to end TB by 2030 and therefore reach the SDG goals. It brings hope and builds on the amazing work done in 2022 by many TB High Burden Countries to recover from the impact of COVID-19 while ensuring access to TB treatment and prevention. It centers on the increased engagement of those affected by TB, communities and civil society who are leading the movement towards ending this disease. It is also a great moment to highlight the progress made in research and development – many new TB diagnosis tools, shorter, more efficient treatment and preventive regimens as well as few vaccines already in phase 3 clinical trials.
Today, the Stop TB Partnership is sharing the World TB Day campaign toolkit with you. Materials in the toolkit are available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish. We invite everyone to use the proposed materials or adapt them to create your own. This comprehensive toolkit will help raise awareness for the upcoming World TB Day and can be used, adapted, or tailored to fit everyone's needs and vision.
We know that we can end TB! So, let's join this World TB Day 2023 campaign together and make things happen!
