KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation is an international non-profit organization dedicated to fighting tuberculosis (TB) worldwide and to strengthening health systems against TB, globally and locally.
The organization is an international center of expertise for TB control. We are an organization of passionate TB professionals; this includes doctors, researchers, training experts, nurses and epidemiologists.
We aim to stop the spread of the worldwide epidemic of the second 'killer’ infectious disease and to prevent the further spread of drug-resistant TB.
Over the past century we have built up a wealth of knowledge and expertise, initially by succesfully driving back TB in the Netherlands. Since the 1970s we also share our knowledge and expertise with the rest of the world.
Our vision is: A world free of tuberculosis.
Our mission is: The global elimination of TB through the development and implementation of effective, efficient and sustainable TB control strategies.
