Today is World Tuberculosis Day

Yet another year and a reminder that we need to work hard and work together to develop new measures to control and treat TB. On this day in 1882, Dr. Robert Koch declared that TB was caused by bacterium M. tuberculosis and demonstrated the pathogenesis of this disease. Today, 134 years after the discovery of the causative agent, we still do not have a firm control of this infectious agent. We need to work harder.
