TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyaan (PMTBMBA) aims to support Tb patients throughout their treatment journey

Geneva:25/5/23: Minister of Health and Family Welfare Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya, delivered the Keynote Address at a Quad Plus Side Event on Tuberculosis(Tb) during the 76th World Health Assembly being held in Geneva. The event witnessed the participation of distinguished delegates from Quad Plus countries, reinforcing the commitment to tackle the global health challenge posed by TB.

Highlighting India’s proactive response to the TB epidemic, Dr. Mandaviya said, “This year, we observed World TB Day at the One World TB Summit in India essentially highlighting the ethos of One World, One Health that our Hon’ble Prime Minister strongly believes in.” He shared that India is the only country in the world to have developed its own mechanism for estimating its TB burden. By employing a mathematical model based on local evidence, India can now determine the true burden of the disease well ahead of the annual World Health Organization report.

In his address, Dr.Mandaviya emphasized the significance of the upcoming UN High-Level Meeting (UNHLM) on Tuberculosis, scheduled for September, as an opportunity to evaluate the collective progress made towards ending TB. He commended India’s dedication, led by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, in striving to eliminate TB from the country by 2025, five years ahead of the global Sustainable Development Goal.
