Raising awareness about TB in our borough

World TB Day will help to raise public awareness on the serious impact that tuberculosis (TB) can have on a person’s health on Saturday 24 March.

Brent has one of the highest numbers of people with TB in London reflecting a large migrant community from countries with a high risk of the condition. In our borough, over 1,000 people have been tested for latent TB since 2016, a form of TB where the immune system can't kill the bacteria, but manages to prevent it spreading in the body.
