‘Mission TB Free Haryana’, an initiative by Medanta – The Medicity, launched to support the Government of India’s substantial programme of eradicating Tuberculosis has successfully completed a year since its inception on 20th November’ 15. An event, presided over by Shri Anil Vij, the Honorable Health Minister of India along with several dignitaries including Mr. Jonathan Addleton, USAID/India Mission Director from US Embassy and Dr. David Ford from Scarborough, UK among others, was organized to commemorate the same occasion. An addition of five new digitally - furnished vans was announced on this day. This was followed by a meeting between the Government’s District TB Officers and Medanta’s doctors to further formulate plans and strategies for achieving the desired goal.
In its first phase, the mission included only 5 districts, namely, Rewari, Gurugram, Mewat, Palwal and Jhajjar. Equipped vans with chest X-Ray machines and other essential equipment were deployed across each of these districts to work parallel with the Government’s Primary and Secondary Health Centres. The progress of the mission can be estimated by the fact that, today, 21 districts of Haryana fall under the aegis of this extensive mission. This noble mission lead by Dr. Bornali Datta, Department of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine, Medanta under the aegis of 'Call to action for a TB-Free India', by the Government of India has treated approximately 3000 people for TB in past one year. Stressing on the need for improved case findings for TB, Dr. Naresh Trehan, CMD - Medanta said, "More than 50% of patients with pulmonary TB go undetected in India currently. The rise of the drug-resistant strain has made the situation even worse. Social stigma, lack of awareness and inadequate medical facilities further aggravate the problem. This screening programme under TB Free Haryana initiative aims to guide patients about their status and encourage them to start treatment for TB as soon as possible. This will help reduce the spread of the disease."
