Tuberculosis still ranks as the world’s second most fatal infectious disease


Mar 25, 2024

March 24 marks World TB (Tuberculosis) Day, which honors the discovery of the bacteria responsible for TB by Dr. Robert Koch in 1882. This infectious disease has been a major public health concern for years, despite the development of antibiotics to treat it. Even today, multi-resistant strains of TB continue to pose a threat to global health.

In a special report, FRANCE 24’s Julia Sieger delves into the challenges surrounding the treatment and prevention of TB. She discusses the impact of multi-resistant strains of the disease and the ongoing efforts to address this issue on a global scale. Through her reporting, she sheds light on the importance of raising awareness about TB and finding solutions to combat it effectively.

As World TB Day is commemorated each year, it serves as a reminder of the ongoing fight against this infectious disease. Through education, research, and advocacy, progress is being made to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of TB worldwide. By sharing information and highlighting the significance of this day, we can work towards a future where TB is no longer a threat to public health.
