TB is second only to HIV/AIDS as the greatest infectious killer disease worldwide, and India has the highest TB burden in the world, accounting for almost 25 per cent of global TB cases.

With proper diagnosis and treatment, TB can be cured. However, too many people with TB don’t seek care for early symptoms and get properly diagnosed. Of those in whom the disease is detected, many do not complete their treatment.
