India signs USD 400M loan agreement with World Bank to eliminate TB

World Bank
India has signed a loan agreement worth 400 million dollar with the World Bank to help treat and eliminate Tuberculosis from the country.

In India, around five lakh people died every year due to Tuberculosis. 

Finance Ministry said the World Bank supported program will cover nine States and it will support the government's National Strategic Plan to end TB in India by 2025.

The Program will provide financial incentives to private sector care providers for reporting cases of TB and ensuring that their patients complete the treatment regimen.

The Ministry said it will also provide Direct Benefit Transfers to patients for acquiring the critical nutrition needed during treatment.

The Program will also strengthen the detection, treatment and monitoring of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis and will track progress in the detection of additional drug resistance.
