World TB Day 2023 aims to take Action to End TB, Get Screened, End Stigma, Save Lives.

The first step is to encourage people to get screened for TB and tear down the stigma that still surrounds TB and discourage people from testing and screening and also ensure that those who are diagnosed complete their course of treatment for a full recovery.

The National Department of Health and National TB Think Tank have released a TB recovery plan to reverse the losses incurred during the Covid-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns.

This year the State of TB Report takes more in-depth look at the governance of TB programmes in South Africa and focuses on what is needed to bring about coherence in the implementation of TB programmes. The World Health Organisation defines governance.
