FOR EVERY WORKER
ENDING WORKPLACE TB
WHO WE ARE
Ending Workplace TB (EWTB) is a campaign supported by some of the world's biggest companies. We work to ensure that everyone connected to the workplace, wherever they are in the world, is free from tuberculosis (TB). We do that by providing best practice tools that enable businesses and workplace communities to unite in action against the transmission of TB.
TB is the world's leading infectious killer. It is airborne, increasingly drug-resistant, and found in nearly every country in the world. 10.5 million people every year get TB, threatening their health, their lives, and risking the economic wellbeing of their families.
We believe that companies can play a critical role in helping end TB and keep their most valuable assets, their people, safe.
EWTB is supported by over 50 of the largest companies in the world. Collectively they:
Reach 6 million employees directly, and hundreds of millions through their workplace communities.
Operate in 27 of the 30 highest TB burden countries in the world.
Cover 10 of the 11 industrial sectors listed on the GICS.
And more than 2/3rds had never worked on TB before
THE TIME IS NOW
In September 2023, world leaders came together at the United Nations to agree an ambitious new framework to end the global TB epidemic. With the right programmes and investment, we could end TB in the next ten years.
EWTB and its partners work in support of the UN Declaration, making sure that the private sector does its part to end the biggest killer in human history.
