Every year, on March 24, World Tuberculosis (TB) Day is celebrated to raise awareness about TB and to step up efforts to end this present-day pandemic that affects over 10 million people. The World Health Organization’s theme for World TB Day 2023 is Yes! We can #EndTB!
The Social Science & Health Innovations for Tuberculosis (SSHIFTB) Centre is a global network of social science scholars and advocates that works to amplify attention to the neglected social dimensions of tuberculosis.
Please join us for this exciting webinar to hear about the recent achievements made in unveiling and addressing the social drivers of TB as a pathway to #EndTB.
