The commemoration of World TB Day seeks to raise awareness on the tuberculosis burden in the world, as well as the efforts made for its prevention and control. Throughout the years, this commemoration has offered the opportunity to mobilize the political, economic and social commitment for the prevention and control of TB in the countries.

For the 2014 campaign, PAHO will follow the worldwide focus on TB diagnosis and case detection of those still not reached, with emphasis in the Americas on vulnerable populations, social determinants and large cities.
