Together, let's #EndTB: a World TB Day webinar
Yes, we can #EndTB by 2030.

Despite being preventable and largely treatable, tuberculosis (TB) is one of the world’s deadliest infectious diseases, second only to COVID-19. Over the past two years, we have seen devastating increases in TB incidence and deaths, due to disruptions to programming and care during the COVID-19 pandemic, with 1.6 million people dying of TB in 2021 alone.

TB is also an issue in Canada, where the burden of disease is disproportionately felt by Indigenous peoples and newcomers. Addressing the ongoing TB outbreaks that Indigenous and Inuit communities face across Canada is not only essential to meeting the government’s commitment to TB elimination across Inuit Nunangat by 2030, but also to advancing the work of Reconciliation. Additionally, with the vast majority of the TB burden in Canada being borne by newcomers, addressing the TB crisis in Canada is intricately tied to the global fight to end TB, to global solidarity, and to the right to health for all.

Ahead of this World TB Day (March 24), join us for an open discussion with distinguished speakers who will share their valuable experience and insights on how we can work together to take meaningful, high-impact action to end TB once and for all in Canada and abroad – because we can.
