Critical Path Institute Honors World Tuberculosis Day 2012

Tuberculosis (TB) is often thought to be a disease of the past. The reality: Because no new therapies for TB have been developed in the past 50 years and treatment is long and complex, TB continues to kill 1.4 million people a year- someone every 20 seconds. Additionally, drug resistant forms of TB are an imminent public health concern. Critical Path Institute (C-Path) joins in acknowledgment of this global threat as it is commemorated on World TB Day 2012 – March 24th – to highlight its impact and acknowledge the work being done to eradicate the disease.
