Ghana joined the world to commemorate World TB day 2014 on 24th March 2014at the Mantse Agbonaa in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.

The day has been set aside by the WHO and the International Union Against TB and Lung Disease (IUATLD) to commemorate the discovery of the bacteria that spreads Tuberculosis in 1882. Many years after the discovery of the TB germ by Dr. Koch, the disease seems to be raging on therefore making it important to continue to commemorate it to send messages across to draw attention to the disease.
