India’s Media War

An interesting war is going on between the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Indian National Congress on social media. This time the Congress seems to have learnt from the 2014 debacle and a sizable army is continuously firing on BJP from close range. The BJP's troll army is losing ground and getting serious injuries in both Twitter and Facebook fronts.

Can we reach the tipping point for childhood TB?

An estimated 1 million annual cases of children with TB (although the actual number could be much higher); 210,000 annual deaths from childhood TB - a mortality rate of 21%! More shockingly, 96% of these deaths occur in children who do not receive any TB treatment. A treatable and preventable disease that is not being treated, and certainly not being prevented. A scary situation indeed!
