News : Awareness about TB Helpline
Amritsar, India, March 2, 2016 -- Project Axshya for the control of TB being run by the Voluntary Health Association of India has planned to initiate an awareness campaign regarding toll-free TB helpline.
The project’s district coordinator, Gurbhej Singh, said the partner NGOs and volunteers would conduct community meetings and Samvad (door-to-door interaction) in marginalised and vulnerable areas to make people aware about the symptoms of tuberculosis.
He said the unique feature of a ‘missed call’ on this toll-free number, 1800116666, added to its importance because the user is called back on giving a missed call.
The District TB Officer, Dr Naresh Chawla, said people could have access to the information relating to the TB symptoms and government facilities on this toll-free number.
However, the facility is being availed by few people only, probably due to poor awareness among the masses. In order to fulfil the objective of the toll-free number, people will be made aware about it through Project Axshya, he said.
