TB is a dangerous disease that can be controlled, treated, and even prevented by the right treatment and compliance from the patient. Health professionals will have the opportunity to learn how to educate patients about the disease and how to cope with it. Also, they will learn the measures of isolation and protection by providing them with up-to-date information.

The theme "I am Stopping TB" was created by the World Health Organization (WHO) to stimulate the entire world to protect their countries from TB and prevent it from spreading. According to WHO estimations, by the end of the year 2020, 70 million people will die from TB all over the world.
