Our #It’sTimeToEndTB campaign asks that we invest in research and development to discover the medicines and diagnostic tools needed to stay ahead of TB so that this epidemic can be eradicated. We need Canada to step up the fight against TB so that people living with TB can be properly diagnosed and cured.
The ask: Canada lives up to its commitments made at the 2018 United Nations High Level meeting on TB by accelerating the development of essential new tools to end TB.
For World TB Day on March 24, make sure Canadian decision makers hear your raised voice in solidarity with others around the world who want to see an end to TB. Create attention in an instant by sending the ready-made tweet or post text, or follow our step-by-step instructions below to create your own. Be sure to use the official hashtag #ItsTimeToEndTB!

Tuberculosis continues to be the #1 infectious disease killer in the world. Why? Because drug-resistant strains of #TB are continuously evolving and our medicines and tools cannot cannot reach and cure all people living with TB. I want to see Canada invest in greater research and development so the world can stay ahead of this epidemic and end it - once and for all!
