The World Tuberculosis Day aims to raise awareness of the global tuberculosis epidemic and efforts to eliminate the disease. One third of the world's population is now infected with the tuberculosis bacillus. The Stop TB Partnership, a network of organizations and countries fighting against this disease, is organizing this day to show the scale of the epidemic and present the means of prevention and treatment.

World Tuberculosis Day, celebrated annually on March 24, commemorates the presentation by Dr Robert koch to a group of doctors in Berlin in 1882 about his discovery of the tuberculosis bacillus, which marked the beginning of efforts to diagnose and treat the disease. In this area, WHO's action aims to reduce by half, by 2015, the prevalence and number of deaths.
