An Urgent Appeal to the Civic Authorities

Please check for TB or Leprosy Patients on treatment before you demolish a slum. The recent demolition of the Rafiq Nagar Slum had 3 TB patients on treatment. They are now missing. This is an open invitation to MDR and XDR TB and will pose a serious threat to the success of the TB Programme in Mumbai .
