"It is a matter of deep concern that TB continues to kill one person every two minutes or almost 750 people daily in India," he said.

"Our endeavour should be quick diagnosis of TB patients and providing high-quality treatment for all diagnosed cases."

"Let us commit ourselves to building health care systems in the country which are equitable, affordable and accessible by all sections of the society. I am confident that with determined efforts, we can establish a TB-free India within a short period of time," Mukherjee added.
