    Tuberculosis (TB) which was once considered almost incurable, can now be eradicated with regular treatment due to early diagnosis and availability of effective drugs. Tuberculosis Prevention Day is celebrated on 24th March every year to create awareness in the society about this disease.

    District Tuberculosis Control Officer Dr. Arun Roy said that in the year 2020, 3374 TB patients have been identified and put under treatment after proper diagnosis.

    The state government’s health system has set up a district tuberculosis center with state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment facilities behind Dabhoi Dashalad Bhavan on the city’s Ajwa-Waghodia ring road where diagnostic and treatment facilities are available free of cost. Through CME private physicians are also informed about the diagnosis of tuberculosis in this centre.

    Dr. Arun Roy says that the Government of India is constantly updating the detection and treatment of its patients with the aim of eradicating the disease by 2025. A door-to-door patient search campaign was recently launched with the help of Asha workers to make the celebration of World Tuberculosis Day meaningful. In addition, community meetings are organized in the population to inform the people about the symptoms of the disease and facilities for diagnosis and treatment.

    It is imperative that the patient with this disease gets a nutritious diet. Correspondingly, the Government of India provides nutritional assistance to the patients under the Nikshaya Poshan Yojana. In the year 2020, 1898 TB patients undergoing treatment have been given assistance at the rate of Rs.500 per month.

    The help of social and industrial organizations is sought to help the patients in maintaining the nutrition. Under this, the Vadodara and Padra unit in collaboration with Lupine, Gulbrandson and Por Industrial Estate Board provided nutrition kits to the patients.

    Tuberculosis patients suffering from covid were assisted in treatment by the District Tuberculosis Center. The camp was organized for the examination and free treatment of children in collaboration with the Lions Club.

    Dr. Roy said that tuberculosis can be cured with timely and regular treatment. Free diagnosis and treatment of this disease is available. Those in need can contact the District Tuberculosis Center at the above address.
