24 March - Today is World TB Day
--------------------------------

Tuberculosis (TB) kills approximately 2 million people each
year. The global epidemic is growing and becoming more danger-
ous. The breakdown in health services, the spread of HIV/AIDS
and the emergence of multidrug-resistant TB are contributing to
the worsening impact of this disease.
