Several buildings of Baku, as well as Baku Olympic Stadium and architectural monument of the 12th century Maiden Tower will be lightened with the color of red at 00:00 a.m on March 24, APA reports.
Mottos of the World Health Organization on the World Tuberculosis Day (“The clock is ticking”, “End TB”) will be demonstrated on the buildings.
The goal is to focus on the fight against tuberculosis. Starting from 2017, the Stop TB partnership has been holding an annual campaign to lighten historic architectural buildings and important buildings in different cities around the world with red color in connection with World TB Day. This year, the Azerbaijan Coalition of TB NGOs and the Public Union "Health Service" have initiated this action in our country. This will draw attention to the pain and difficulties of people suffering from tuberculosis and show solidarity with them.
