The Union is a global scientific organisation working to improve health for people in low and middle-income countries. Tuberculosis (TB) is a curable and treatable disease yet it is the leading infectious disease killer worldwide, accounting for 1.45 million deaths in 2018 alone. The Union works towards the global elimination of TB, and supports high-quality, accessible prevention and care for people with and at risk of TB.
Christmas seals continue to be a tool in the arsenal of the war against TB, and the Union holds an annual Christmas Seal Contest among the nations of the world. Check out this year, and previous winners.
