10 Days to World TB Day 2019


Thursday, March 14, 2019 to Monday, March 25, 2019

The World TB Day celebration is on 24th March every year. The Theme for the 2019 world TB day is IT’S TIME! and the slogan is  To end TB in Nigeria (Keep the promise!  Find TB!  Treat TB!). In view of this, the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Programme (NTBLCP) will join the rest of the world to mark the 2019 World TB Day. As usual, we have planned to carry out a number of activities to commemorate the day which are as follows:


  • Pre- WTBD 2019 conference
  • Ministerial Press briefing
  • Community Outreach to Village heads/ Community TB Screening with WOW truck
  • Radio interview
  • Gala Night
  • Social media outreach (Twitter, Facebook Instagram)
  • Road Show/walk/float
  • Discussion on TV and Radio
  • High level advocacy to National assembly
  • TB Talk shows in the Armed forces

Join us as we strive to end TB in Nigeria.
