World Tuberculosis Day 2022 is observed to raise awareness about the serious bacterial disease that affects the health of the lungs.

The day also highlights the social and economic consequences of tuberculosis along with its health impacts globally.

Today, World Tuberculosis Day, was the day when Dr Robert Koch announced his discovery of the bacterium that causes TB. Commemorating this discovery in 1882, the day is observed worldwide.

This year, World Tuberculosis Day 2022, the theme of World Tuberculosis Day is “invest to End TB. Save Lives.”

The theme focuses on the need for investments and resources that are required to eradicate this disease.

It's a way of conveying these needs to global leaders to reinforce their commitment to fighting this disease.

The theme also ensures access to prevention and care of TB in order to achieve Universal Health Coverage by WHO.

Tuberculosis can be treated when detected early. The strain of TB is also important when treating the disease.
