World TB Day, 2022

Tuberculosis (TB) remains one of the world’s deadliest infectious diseases, taking the lives of 4,100 people each day. Although it is preventable and treatable, a quarter of the world’s population – nearly 2 billion people – are infected with TB and approximately 10 million people become ill each year with the disease. This World TB Day, CDC affirms our commitment to finding, curing, and preventing all forms of TB at home and around the world.
