The WHO theme for this World TB day 2021 was ‘The clock is ticking’ to convey the urgency and imperative need for us to step up our efforts to achieve our TB elimination goals. This calls for concerted action by all the stakeholders. We need to plug in the gaps at every stage of the TB care continuum. Creating awareness, optimal diagnosis, appropriate treatment can help the millions of patients who battle TB each year. The largest reason for treatment failure in TB is due to treatment with drugs to which the M.Tb bacilli are resistant.
