A seminar on TB-free India was organised by RC Nagpur Fort, D 3030, in partnership with Rotary India National TB Control and Awareness Committee and the UNION, an international forum against tuberculosis and lung disease.
The Committee Chair and PRID Y P Das was the chief guest at the event which was initiated by DG Dr K S Rajan. The UNION’s technical advisor Shiv Shreshtha held an interactive session with the audience on the preventive measures to control the spread of TB. In his address, Das lauded the efforts of the DG in organising the seminar which, he noted, will create awareness and also usher in the much-needed behaviour changes in the society. The ways and means of Rotary’s involvement in eradicating TB were also discussed.
“The main purpose of the seminar was to sensitise Rotarians and TB officials at the Directorate of Health Services of the Maharashtra Government,” said DG Rajan. RC Nagpur Fort President Captain Milind Hastak gave the welcome address, while PP Srihari Chava anchored the seminar. The President-elect Dr Pravin Dahake proposed the vote of thanks.
