Commemorating World TB Day: The Ongoing Fight Against Multi-Resistant Strains of This Deadly Disease

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

As the world commemorates World TB Day on March 24th, it is a reminder of the ongoing fight against this infectious disease. Discovered by Dr. Robert Koch in 1882, TB 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 explores the challenges surrounding the treatment and prevention of TB. She delves into 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 highlights the importance of raising awareness about TB and finding solutions to combat it effectively.

As we work towards a future where TB is no longer a threat to public health, education, research, and advocacy are key components in improving prevention, diagnosis, and treatment worldwide. By sharing information and recognizing the significance of this day, we can come together as a global community to make progress in combating this disease.
