Take Action Alert: lighting up landmarks for World TB Day 2024

By: Results Canada Published: 16/01/2024

For over 9,000 years we have been fighting against tuberculosis (TB). With great efforts, we’ve made progress - TB is now preventable and curable. However, action is needed to expand efforts to prevent and cure it as it remains the world’s deadliest infectious disease with more than 4,000 people dying of TB every day. It’s time we end this epidemic – once and for all.

Every year, the international community shines a spotlight on tuberculosis on March 24th for World TB Day. It is a global occasion to stand in solidarity with the millions of people who suffer from TB, and the millions who have lost their lives.

Stand with us!

We work together every year to join the global effort by getting monuments across Canada lit up in red to raise awareness of – and inspire action on – TB. In 2023, our volunteers secured 45 monuments across the country to participate! We need your help to go beyond this year - starting now.

Most application procedures are easy, but usually need 1-2 months’ notice for approval, so don’t wait! Download our guide with step-by-step instructions on being successful in your request. Anyone can make these requests and it’s a great way to take action on this important issue!
