WORLD TUBERCULOSIS DAY IS MARCH 24

March 24th marks the anniversary of the 1882 discovery of Tuberculosis Bacteria (TB), a disease that usually affects the lungs.  This discovery led to the development of treatment for Tuberculosis.  While TB generally affects the lungs ( pulmonary TB), other body parts can also be affected, including vital organs, lymph nodes and bones (extrapulmonary TB). TB can affect anyone of any age.  It is spread through the air when a contagious person with pulmonary TB coughs, speaks or breathes.  Prolonged exposure is needed for an individual  to become infected.
