CDC U.S. World TB Day 2023 Resources

January 23, 2023

Dear Colleagues,

Each year we recognize World TB Day on March 24 with a variety of activities leading up to the official day.  This annual event commemorates the date Dr. Robert Koch announced his discovery of the bacillus that causes tuberculosis (TB).

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of TB Elimination is sharing some information to assist in World TB Day 2023 planning efforts.

  • Nominations for the U.S. CDC U.S. TB Elimination Champions are now open! We are seeking nominations that reflect the important contributions that individuals, TB survivors, agencies, organizations, and partners have made to eliminate TB. U.S. TB Champions will have their stories featured on CDC’s website, Twitter, and Facebook accounts.

As we approach World TB Day, we will be adding additional resources and materials to the World TB Day Website. This webpage will continue to be updated with 2023 World TB Day information. We will keep you updated on any planned activities or additional resources that may be helpful.

If you have questions, please contact

Thank you,

Nickolas DeLuca, PhD
