According to union health ministry data, over 9.5 lakh tuberculosis patients have been adopted under the ‘Pradhan Mantri TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyan’, the Pradhan Mantri TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyaan has been envisioned to bring together all community stakeholders to support those on TB treatment and accelerate the country’s progress towards TB elimination.
A balanced diet is required during TB treatment. Providing nutritional support to TB patients is a key strategy for TB elimination, under which every TB patient is entitled to have a group through the Nikshay Poshan Yojana.
