Toll-free helpline for TB patients


Seeking to reach out to tuberculosis patients, the government on Thursday said that it will launch a toll-free helpline, whereby even a missed call would suffice to connect them with the health programme against the disease.

"We will use the mobile and telecommunication technology and provide platform to suspected patients to call us on a toll-free number seeking help and guidance. Even a missed call will suffice," official sources said.
