The World TB Day Campaign 2012 will allow people all over the world to make an individual call to stop TB in their lifetimes. From the Stop TB Partnership website:
In their lifetimes, today's children should expect to see a world where no one gets sick with TB.
In their lifetimes, women and men should expect to see a world where no one dies from TB.
People of different ages and living in different countries could have these hopes for stopping TB in their lifetimes:
- Zero deaths from TB
- Faster treatment
- A quick, cheap, low-tech test
- An effective vaccine
- A world free of TB.
