Tuberculosis is preventable, treatable and curable!
The Tuberculosis Prevention & Control Program at Toronto Public Health works with health professionals and the community to reduce the incidence and impact of TB in Toronto and to provide support for individuals with TB and their families.
We offer various programs and services.
World TB Day - March 24
March 24 is World Tuberculosis Day every year. TB remains an epidemic in much of the world. This is mainly because of challenges in early diagnosis and treatment. Every year 10.4 million people worldwide fall ill with TB and 1.8 million die from the disease. There are approximately 300 Torontonians diagnosed with TB disease each year.
Today we celebrate the perseverance and strength of those diagnosed with tuberculosis who, by completing treatment, have protected others. View and hear their stories. TB is preventable, treatable, and curable. Unite to End TB!
