"The rate of immunisation rose to 6 per cent in the last 3-and-half years and we will achieve 90 per cent immunisation coverage by next year", the PM said. He added that expert TB physicians and workers can make a great positive impact in this campaign. Had we continued at with the same pace, it would have taken us another 40 years to achieve the target. He said those patients who overcome this disease also inspire others.

Also present on the occasion were Union Minister for Health J.P. Nadda; Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Anupriya Patel; Director-General, WHO, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus; former director, Stop TB Partnership, Ms. Lucica Difiu; along with Health Ministers from 20 countries.
