The Lt. Governor, Shri V.K. Saxena today reviewed the progress of Prime Minister’s – Tuberculosis Mukt Bharat Abhiyan (PM- TB MBA) in Delhi and directed officials to work in a mission-mode to achieve the target of eradicating Tuberculosis in the National Capital during the next 08 months, ahead of the goal of year 2025, set by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, ShriNarendraModi. He stressed upon the importance of concerted and coordinated efforts by all stakeholder departments/agencies in achieving this goal. Those present in the meeting included Chief Secretary, Delhi, Special Officer MCD, Secretary (Health), Divisional Commissioner, Commissioner (MCD), Commissioner (Food and Civil Supplies) and Secretary (Power).

Reviewing the status of monitoring of TB Patients in Delhi, the LG expressed satisfaction over the fact that of the 50,815 patients on treatment in the City, 95% that is 46,028 had consented to be adopted for availing the benefits and community support, through registered ‘Ni-KshayMitras’ under the PM – TB MBAbhiyan. The support under the Abhiyanincludes, provision of nutritional support to TB patients at Rs 1000 per patient per month by the ‘Ni-KshayMitras’, apart from free treatment and medicines. The LG directed that pictures of all beneficiaries taking the nutrition kits be uploaded online every time the distribution takes place, so as to ensure there is no leakage and transparency in the Abhiyan. 

In this regard, the LG directed for dedicated days to be identified in coordination with the Hospitals, Clinics and Dispensaries, where patients come for treatment and monitoring, so that batches of patientscould come to receive their medicines and nutritional kits on the same day without facing the harassment of travelling multiple times. He asked officers to launch this drive at the earliest. 

It was informed that in addition to the ‘Ni- KshayMitras’  who will support patients, a sum of Rs. 10 Crs. had already been aggregated through CSR Funding of various entities which was sufficient to cover about 14,000 patients who had opted for adoption under PM – TB MBA. The LG directed that officers of the LG Secretariat, Delhi Police, MCD, NDMC, DDA, etc. be encouraged to become ‘Ni – KshayMitras’ and adopt patients. A program to launch such adoption will also be launched with participating government departments on the 15thOctober, 2022. ShriSaxena also directed that efforts be made to augment the involvement of Corporate Associations like ASSOCHAM, CII and FICCI, etc. in the PM – TB MBA. 

The LG will be monitoring the roll out and progress of this scheme on a fortnightly basis.
