Breathing in Science to Eliminate TB: World TB Day 2022            

In support of World TB Day, held annually on March 24, the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS), of which the American Thoracic Society is a founding member, called on the tuberculosis community to challenge ourselves to think differently, champion science and embrace evidence-based innovation if we are to end TB.

We have made great strides towards eliminating TB over the last 100 years. The progress made to date has only been possible because of our commitment to research and innovation. While it is important to reflect on our achievements, we must continue to advance our knowledge through research and implement it into policy and practice.
