22.151 votes to stop TB

Marking World Tuberculosis Day, 22.151 votes were presented to Martin Boeree, head of the NL TB Research Forum.

“We are delighted that so many people have supported the fight against TB, because it is unacceptable that currently there are still people dying of TB unnecessarily”.

KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation is dedicated to realizing a world where nobody dies of TB. The Netherlands has contributed greatly to tuberculosis research that focusses on preventing, diagnosing and treating the disease. This is the only way to eliminate Tb on a global scale in an effective and efficient manner.

KNCV has been fighting TB since its establishment in 1903. Over the past 117 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB control, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
