Modi launches campaign to eradicate TB from India by 2025

He said, "The fact that several ministers from all states and concerned officers are present in the event here, indicate how we, as a Team India, are determined to eradicate TB from India".

India has the highest burden of tuberculosis in the world-each year, 29 lakh new cases of TB are reported; 4.20 lakh people, mostly poor, are known to die of the disease. He further said that front-line TB physicians and workers can make a most important contribution in this course.

"But the ground reality still remains that we have not been successful in curbing tuberculosis yet". I believe that if something doesn't yield result even after 10-15 years then we need to change our approach.
