Udhampur, Sep 17: Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh on Sunday said that public-private partnership (PPP) with integrated strategy is essential to achieve ‘TB Mukt Bharat’ which is actually inspired by PM Narendra Modi’s commitment of ‘TB Mukt Bharat’ by 2025.
Dr Jitendra Singh said this while flagging off SMVD Narayana Healthcare TB Mukt Express at Udhampur with the slogan ‘Chalo Chale TB Ko Harane’. He said India’s efforts to eradicate TB by 2025 are a role model for the world and urged citizens to work collectively towards TB elimination in the true spirit of Jan Bhagidari.
“Considering the deep societal and economic impact caused by tuberculosis, the Government of India has placed a high priority on ‘TB Mukt Bharat’ by 2025 and biotechnology is going to play a huge part in the integrated holistic healthcare approach against the elimination of tuberculosis,” he said.
Dr Jitendra said that strategies such as private sector engagement, active case finding, decentralisation of services through Health and Wellness Centres, community engagement and Ni-kshay Poshan Yojana have transformed India’s TB management efforts and made it patient-centric.
During the programme, Dr Singh distributed kits among TB patients adopted by him in his parliamentary constituency to take care of their daily needs to accomplish PM Narendra Modi’s vision of TB-Free India by 2025.
Deputy Commissioner, Udhampur, Saloni Rai and DDC Chairman Udhampur Lal Chand were present during the programme.
