Tuberculosis is preventable, treatable and curable!

The Tuberculosis Program at Toronto Public Health works with health professionals and the community to reduce the incidence and impact of TB in Toronto and to provide support for individuals with TB and their families.


March 24 is World Tuberculosis Day. The CN Tower and Toronto sign will be lit up in red in commemoration. Tuberculosis (TB) is preventable, treatable and curable; however, it remains one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide. Learn more about the global effort to end TB.
