New Delhi | The Centre and the state governments are working together to make India TB-free by 2025, ahead of the global target of achieving the goal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday.
In a series of tweets on the World Tuberculosis (TB) Day, he said, the government reaffirms its commitment towards ensuring a society free of TB.
“This would greatly benefit the poor. Correct and complete treatment is the key to winning the battle against TB. I also salute the people and organisations strengthening the TB-free movement,” he wrote.
The Centre and various state governments are working hard to make India free of Tuberculosis by 2025, 5 years before the global target of 2030, he asserted.
He said Centre’s efforts such as the TB-Free India campaign and Ayushman Bharat are improving health standards and providing assistance to TB patients.
