In 2010, KNCV Tuberculosis Fund was pleased to welcome Her Royal Highness Princess Margriet of the Netherlands as Patron. This recaptured a historical bond once again, while Queen Emma gave her name to Emmabloem’s activities a hundred years earlier.
On September 27, 1903, the forerunner of the KNCV Tuberculosis Fund was founded in The Hague. The Dutch Central Committee, later the Royal Dutch Society for the Control of Tuberculosis (KNCV), was merged with the Dutch Tuberculosis Fund in 2003. Since then,they have been wearing the royal name KNCV Tuberculosis Fund.
For over 110 years, KNCV has dedicated itself to the fight against Tuberculosis, in the Netherlands as well as on a global scale.
As one of the few global organizations that dedicates itself exclusively to the fight against TB, KNCV has developed into a renowned hub for knowledge and expertise on TB-control.
Everyday our mission drives us towards our ultimate goal; repelling the global TB-epidemic and stopping the spread of drug-resistant Tuberculosis.
With a team of professionals consists of doctors, researchers, social workers, educational experts and epidemiologists who function on a global scale, going where they are most needed and wanted. Headquartered in The Hague, KNCV is always in close contact with any of the organization’s many regional and international offices all over the world.
