•By 2014-15 India is succesfully helps to reduce tb but still Tb is killing peoe and India not able to dignose it.
NOW, HOW INDIA IS FIGHTING FROM TB
• Tamil Nadu is reputated state about health consious so it is going to start a programme . If it is success to reduce TB and than other state will also replicate it.
•Test called tuberculosis skin test(TST) is done to identify weather a person is suffering from TB or not.
•However government is trying spread awerness among people by doing campaing . By telling people to have complete treatment which is available free of cost in gov. hospitals to diagnosed it.
