“Drug based approach alone cannot help to prevent TB”- Prof. M S Swaminathan
Today (24 March 2015) is the World TB Day. TB incidence is increasing in Tamil Nadu and other states. It is clear that a drug based approach alone cannot help to prevent the growing incidence. Most of the TB affected patients are poor and are undernourished. Therefore on this day, a Movement should be launched for providing nutrition support along with the needed drugs to the TB patients.
M S Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) established in 1988 is a not-for-profit trust. MSSRF was envisioned and founded by Professor M S Swaminathan, agriculture scientist with proceeds from the First World Food Prize that he received in 1987.
