The Women’s and Children’s Associations organised awareness drives and street plays in their communities, public places and hospitals. Asha centres across Delhi invited doctors and other officials from TB DOTS (directly observed treatment, short-course) centres and hospitals as chief guests to help make the celebration notable. As a goodwill gesture, the guests brought in some refreshments for the children.

Here are a few glimpses from the day…
