SIX REASONS TO TACKLE TUBERCULOSIS IN THE WORKPLACE
TB is a lethal respiratory pathogen and shares many symptoms and testing procedures with COVID-19. A strong workplace health system can help protect your workforce from the impact of diseases.
ENDING TB IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS
TB has killed more people than any other infectious disease in the last decade. We believe the private sector can play a defining role in overcoming the disease by leveraging the untapped potential of businesses around the world. With your help, we can reach millions of workers and their communities, and drive new progress in the highest-burden areas.
We also believe that efforts to tackle TB are good for businesses. Our business case draws together the best research explaining why investing in tackling respiratory diseases in the workplace can save money and lives. Download it here.
We have also developed resources to help employers calculate the potential costs of TB in their workforces. Contact us on to find out more.
HELPING BUILD HEALTHIER WORKPLACES
We have drawn together a series of "implementation guides" to help companies strengthen their workplace health programmes, with a specific focus on TB and other lethal respiratory pathogens.
By taking relatively simple steps, companies can have a huge impact on the spread of disease in their workplace and the health of their workforce. Our interventions can be added into existing programmes, or be the foundation of a new approach to workplace health.
