Arunachal: Governor BD Mishra Adopts TB Patients

In an act of kindness, Arunachal Pradesh Governor BD Mishra has adopted two tuberculosis (TB) patients. The Raj Bhavan in a press release informed on Tuesday that, “the governor registered himself for sponsoring the patients under community engagement of Pradhan Mantri TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyan.” 

The governor appealed to the people of the state to generously adopt TB patients and make Arunachal Pradesh tuberculosis-free. 

He further called for making the Pradhan Mantri TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyan a “people movement,” and urged NGOs, business houses, government officials and individuals to “adopt TB patients generously.”

District TB Officer Dr Pema Dorjee Thongchi informed that, “once registered as a sponsor, the health official will regularly contact him for providing patient support to the adopted TB patients.”

“The support provided to the patient under this initiative is in addition to free diagnostics, free drugs and Nikshay Poshan Yojana provided under the national TB elimination programme to all the notified TB patients,” the Raj Bhavan quoted him as saying.
