New Delhi: The LRS Institute of Tuberculosis and Respiratory Diseases will now have private ward facility, the first for TB patients in government sector. The private ward of the institute will be inaugurated tomorrow by Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare Ghulam Nabi Azad, officials said. LRS Institute started out as a TB Hospital under the TB Association of India in 1956. With renewed priority to TB control both nationally and globally, the government decided to upgrade the institute as an autonomous body directly under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in 1991. Since then, LRS has grown rapidly in patient care facilities, research activities and training programmes.
