Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) has been exchanged by Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare with the Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Railways to strengthen inter-ministerial coordination and efforts towards Tuberculosis-free India by 2025.
Tuberculosis is entirely preventable and curable; still is a major obstacle to India’s human and economic development and a risk for country’s economic growth potential i.e. the working group.
TB is more than a public health problem as it is also associated with socio-economic development, marginalization and exploitation. That’s why a harmonized multisectoral response is necessary; the Health ministry believes that the target can be achieved via this multisectoral collaboration. This holistic approach strategy will be the key to end TB in India by 2025.
Through this Inter-ministerial coordination, the aim of the Health ministry is to reach key populations served by various Ministries such as workers, miners, migrants, tribal population, women and children etc., and develop a social movement for collective efforts of the society for ending TB in India.
The MoU will develop linkages and integration of TB care services under the health infrastructure and network of Health Ministry.
