World Tuberculosis Day is observed on 24th March every year to raise public awareness about the devastating health, social and economic consequences of Tuberculosis,TB, and to step up efforts to end the global epidemic. The day is observed to commemorate the anniversary of Dr. Robert Koch’s discovery of the TB bacteria in 1882. The theme of World TB Day 2020 - ‘It’s time’ - puts the accent on the urgency to act on the commitments made by global leaders to scale up access to prevention and treatment, build accountability, ensure sufficient and sustainable financing including for research, promote an end to stigma and discrimination, and promote an equitable, rights-based and people-centered TB response. The World Health Organization (WHO) has launched a joint initiative “Find. Treat. All. #EndTB” with the Global Fund and Stop TB Partnership, with the aim of accelerating the TB response and ensuring access to care, in line with WHO’s overall drive towards Universal Health Coverage. ln his message on World TB Day, President Ram Nath Kovind said, Government of India has committed to eliminate prevalence of TB by 2025, with commensurate resources to rapidly reduce TB incidence prevalence and mortality in India. He appreciated the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for implementing the National Strategic Plan for Tuberculosis Elimination (2017-2025). Mr Kovind said, the Ministry deserves to be complemented for working tirelessly to improve quality of treatment and to create comprehensive support systems for TB patients. The President appealed all the stakeholders to come together to reinforce the efforts in "TB Harega Desh Jeetega Campaign" and to ensure that this campaign becomes truly a people's movement.
