World TB Day resources from TB Alert

To mark World TB Day in the UK, TB Alert has produced a range of colourful social media banners and tiles that address key TB awareness issues from the Collaborative TB Strategy for England. The images use people’s real-life testimony to raise awareness of TB symptoms and the importance of early diagnosis; to address TB stigma; and to encourage eligible communities to take up latent TB testing and treatment. Please share and distribute widely.
