Meet Yogesh Patel and Dr Amarendra Mohapatra who decode the need to understand why nutritious diet plays an important role while fighting with tuberculosis. TB patients have weakened immune systems, and the only way to boost it is through consuming protein and dairy products.

They explain how they are spreading awareness about the significance of a healthy diet. They also discuss the Ni-kshay Poshan scheme launched by the Indian government where the program provides Rs 500 to every TB patient, allowing them to purchase nutritious food for themselves.
