Every year, on March 24, World TB Day is observed to raise awareness about tuberculosis (TB) and its impact on people the world over. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include ending the TB epidemic by 2030. The World Health Organisation’s ‘end TB strategy’ aims to reduce the global incidence of TB to the levels achieved by high-income countries by 2030. Recognising the importance of this, the Indian Prime Minister has advanced the target to eliminate TB in India by five years, to 2025.
