World Water Day 2018


Around the world, 844 million people still do not have a basic drinking water service. Lack of safe drinking water and toilets increases the chance for outbreaks of waterborne diseases like typhoid fever, hepatitis, and cholera.

World Water Day is observed each year on March 22 to promote the responsible use of water and access to safe water for everyone. Join the discussion by using #WorldWaterDay and following @CDC_NCEZID.

World TB Day 2018


Although tuberculosis (TB) is preventable and curable, many people in the United States still suffer from TB

Each year, we recognize World TB Day on March 24. Be sure to join CDC’s World TB Day Thunderclap, and be part of the discussion using #WorldTBDay.
