Invest to End TB. Save Lives

World Tuberculosis Day is observed on March 24 each year to raise public awareness and understanding about one of the world’s deadliest infectious killers – tuberculosis- and it’s devastating health, social and economic impact on people around the world. Every day, over 4100 people die from TB and nearly 30 000 people fall ill with TB disease – despite it being preventable and treatable.

This dramatization from the Philippines- one of the highest-TB-burden countries in the world- calls for global solidarity, action and investments to this end the suffering and deaths caused by this deadly disease. The story captures the experience of an adolescent boy who discovers he is ill with TB and his courageous journey to cure, thanks to the investments of care, support and love made by friends and family. This emphasizes the theme for World Tuberculosis Day: “Invest to End TB. Save Lives”. Small investments towards ending TB can lead to big impact, saving lives.
