At'End TB Summit PM Modi Aims to Eradicate Tuberculosis by 2025 Causes of TB You Need to Know

Prime Minister Narendra Modi called upon the Indian Institutes of Technology to focus on solar energy sectors for innovations in the direction of no-cost solar-powered kitchens by keeping in mind that India is the biggest market of 25 crore families.

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. Keeping in mind the global target our government will try to end TB from India ahead by 2025.

He expressed confidence that the Delhi End TB Summit would be a landmark event towards the complete elimination of TB. He said the Government is working comprehensively towards this goal. TB free India Campaign will take the activities of National Strategic Plan for TB elimination forward in Mission mode. He said that today's welcome given by the people of Varanasi to Macron will inspire each and every French to think about visiting this city.

Whether it is "Start-up India" or "Mudra Yojana", he said, the Modi government has sought to explore innovative methods of generating livelihood and employability. In the last three years, the rate of immunisation against the disease has grown to 6% annually from 1% in 2014, he claimed. Had we continued at with the same pace, it would have taken us another 40 years to achieve the target.

He also congratulated all frontline TB physicians and workers as well as those affected by the disease for their determination to defeat TB through proper medication.

The summit would set the stage for the September 2018 United Nations High-Level Meeting on TB, where for the first time, TB would be discussed in the UN General Assembly at the Heads of State level.

Reiterating the commitment of the government, Health Minister JP Nadda said, "We are starting a new scheme for nutritional support, expanding public-private partnership models and aligning our strategies to follow the similar success we got in HIV/AIDS".
