"No call to action can ever succeed if we do not exactly know what needs to be done. And to know what exactly needs to be done is not only about reading a textbook but also about going to the fields and understanding where the real ground-problems lie, what the issues are, and this is what has preceded the launch of the call to action in the form of Joint Monitoring Mission (JMM) organized by the Government of India and the WHO. On the basis of these critical findings and assessments we can pull our strengths and knowledge and request India to move forward in implementing them" shared Nata Menabde who represents the WHO in India.

"We are going to achieve 100% case diagnosis and 100% treatment of these. We cannot afford to miss a single case of TB. We will deploy diagnostic tools such as molecular tests to accurately diagnose every case of TB. Call for TB-Free India needs to reach every state and further percolate to every level" rightly said Dr Jagdish Prasad, Director-General Health Services, MoHFW of India.
