16 March, 2018, 01:08
THE WEEK had reported that in the letter, the PM had asked CMs to "closely monitor key performance indicators such as case notification (including from private sector), treatment success rate", and "active case finding in tuberculosis".
He stressed on analysing the situation and changing the approach, saying that efforts to curb tuberculosis has not yield successful results yet and said state governments have a major role to play in elimination of TB from the country. Speaking at inaugural "Delhi End TB Summit" on Tuesday, the PM called for coordination between the Centre and the states to achieve the goal. It is mostly the poor who are the victims of this disease. "I would like to announce that we have set aim to eradicate it from India five years ahead by 2025", Modi said. State governments have a major role to play in the elimination of TB from India, Modi said, adding he has written to all chief ministers to join this mission.
Modi said that he had personally written to the chief ministers of all the states to join in this campaign because the task can not be fulfilled without their participation. Had we continued at the same pace, it would have taken us another 40 years to achieve the target. 'Earlier, the work which was going with 1 per cent, has now increased to 6 per cent and 90 per cent task will be completed in a year'.
He said TB mainly affected the poorest of the poor and every step taken towards the elimination of this disease was a step towards improving the lives of the poor. "If there is no target, there will neither be speed nor direction and neither will we ever reach the destination", the PM told the gathering. "Community engagement is the hallmark and it is becoming a social movement to end TB in India", Union health minister J.P. Nadda said.
He said the Delhi summit, organised by India's Health and Family Welfare Ministry, WHO South East Asia Region and Stop TB Partnership, is a landmark event before the United Nations General Assembly in September 2018 as it is an important step for entire humanity.
