Govt to launch 15 day campaign to trace TB cases

The government will launch a 15-day campaign to trace tuberculosis cases on the lines of its polio drive, a top official announced at the launch of the India TB Research and Development Corporation (ITRDC).

“We will be going on a campaign mode from January 1 to January 15, 2017 to do active case finding (of TB). We will be identifying high risk areas and seek the help of various stakeholders. Initially, this will be only for 15 days but after 6-7 months, we can have it on a larger scale,” Sunil Khaparde, Deputy Director General (TB) of the Health Ministry, said.
