MTBC 2023 World TB Day event

Person-centred care to end TB is the theme of the Melbourne TB Community World TB Day event to be hosted by the Doherty Institute on World TB Day, March 24.

Burnet Institute Deputy Program Director Health Security and Pandemic Preparedness Associate Professor Suman Majumdar will Chair the event, and Burnet Infectious Diseases Specialist Dr Philipp du Cros will present on Integrating Person-Centred Care into Research.

Dr du Cros will also participate in a panel discussion with, among others, Victorian Chief Health Officer, Professor Brett Sutton, and Associate Professor Helen Evans from the Nossal Institute for Global Health.

The goal of the Melbourne TB Community (MTBC) is to promote collaboration among researchers, practitioners and community to strengthen local capacity and develop a coordinated and critical mass of research relating to TB, the world’s oldest and deadliest pandemic.

Commemorating the day that Dr Robert Koch announced the discovery of the bacterium that causes tuberculosis in 1882, World TB Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of the ongoing impact of the disease on health, social and economic wellbeing.

The 2023 theme, Yes! We can end TB! invites hope that the community committed to ending TB globally can get back on track in the lead up to this year’s UN High-Level Meeting on TB. This call to action asks - how will you contribute to end TB?
