Tuberculosis still ranks as the world’s second most fatal infectious disease

As the world commemorates World Tuberculosis (TB) Day on March 24th, it serves as a reminder of the ongoing fight against this infectious disease. Discovered by Dr. Robert Koch in 1882, TB has been a major public health concern for years, despite the development of antibiotics to treat it. However, even today, multi-resistant strains of TB continue to pose a threat to global health.

In a special report, FRANCE 24’s Julia Sieger delves into the challenges surrounding the treatment and prevention of TB. She discusses the impact of multi-resistant strains of the disease and the ongoing efforts to address this issue on a global scale. Through her reporting, she sheds light on the importance of raising awareness about TB and finding solutions to combat it effectively.

The importance of effective treatment and prevention cannot be overstated. Despite advances in medicine and technology, there is still much work to be done in order to improve our understanding and management of this disease. By sharing information and highlighting the significance of this day, we can work towards a future where TB is no longer a threat to public health.
