HRLN file petition regarding non-availability of alcohol to detect TB

Post Date: Thursday, November 16, 2017

HRLN recently filed a petition on the non-availability of alcohol, which had nearly stopped the early detection of Tuberculosis through Sputum Smear Microscopy, which required alcohol to facilitate the testing. 

The case was widely reported in the newspaper. Although the case is ongoing, the centre has directed the state to make arrangements for the provision of alcohol to facilitate Tuberculosis testing. 

You can read a newspaper clipping on the case below.
