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.
