GOLAGHAT: Tuberculosis or TB is one of the major health problems in India. In India four persons in every minute, 5,000 in every day and 20 lakhs in every year get infected with TB. A TB patient who has not taken proper and timely treatment can spread the disease to five more people. So to create awareness among the people regarding this disease, a sensitization meet up was held on Monday at Doctor's Club in Golaghat.

This awareness programme was an initiative of District TB Control Centre in association with District Aids Control Society , District Legal Services Authority, and Randhiya Youth Group Golaghat.
