Health Minister Harsh Vardhan chaired a Tuberculosis, TB Mukt Bharat meeting yesterday with various Development Partners of the Ministry through video conference. It was the 4th meeting chaired by the Health Minister for reviewing the progress in the fight against TB.

Speaking at the meeting, Dr Harsh Vardhan said that the media, especially Doordarshan had played a crucial role in the eradication of polio in the country. On the similar lines, he said, journalists and media personalities should be made TB crusaders to create awareness amongst the people.

He expressed the need to develop an institutionalised mechanism to share the best practices, experiences and ideas used in the fight against TB. He emphasised upon the importance of leadership and community involvement, proposing that religious leaders, leaders of auto unions can be roped in to create awareness against TB.
