WHO will be holding a briefing on World Tuberculosis Day 2017 on 23 March at 11h00 CET. 2017 is the second year of a two-year "Unite to End TB" campaign for World TB Day. This year, WHO is placing a special focus on uniting efforts to "Leave No One Behind" in access to TB care, including actions to overcome the barriers of stigma, discrimination and marginalization. New guidance will be released on this occasion, to ensure that the implementation of the End TB Strategy is in line with sound ethical standards, and protects the rights of those affected especially the most vulnerable and marginalized.
