On the 24th of March 2021, FACT honored the WTBD commemoration to raise public awareness about the devastating health, social and economic consequences of TB, and to step up efforts to end the global TB pandemic. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were no public events organized. FACT, therefore, held a ceremony at the office premises with delegates from partner organizations such as JournAIDS and COWLHA. The ceremony involved speeches from officials of all organizations and a candlelit service that observed a moment of silence in honor of the lives lost due to TB and the COVID-19 pandemic.
