World TB Day: March 24

March 24th is “World TB Day”.

In 1997, the World Health Organization (WHO) established this day as an anniversary aimed at eradicating tuberculosis.

On this day in 1882, Germany’s “Robert Koch” discovered tubercle bacilli and gave a speech.

To commemorate this, March 24th was chosen.
