KNCV runs for a world free of TB!

On March 10, KNCV will participate in the NN CPC Loop (City-Pier-City) in The Hague. The runners are training hard and are very motivated. Why? Because they run to raise money so that people with TB can receive the right diagnosis and treatment in time.

TB remains one of the most deadly infectious diseases in the world. More than 1.3 million people still die from TB every year. It occurs in all countries and age groups. Because TB knows no borders. Therefore, no one is safe until everyone is safe.
