Our Goal: #TBFreePH

Tuberculosis (TB) is curable, yet only one out of five Filipinos choose to have their symptoms checked up.

Every hour, three Filipinos die of TB.

Get tested. Get treated. Be protected.

At 554 cases per 100,000 Filipinos, the Philippines has the highest TB incidence rate in Asia. To be considered TB-free, we should only be at 55 cases per 100,000 by 2035.

As of June 30, 2020, according to Department of Health’s Integration Tuberculosis Information System (DOH-ITIS), we have found and notified


By 2022, we hope to find and treat 2.5 million Filipinos with active TB December 31, 2022 12:00 PM 392 Days
