Year Started: 1991
Supported By: State and Central Government
One of our earliest programs, the TB Eradication program was started in different areas of Chennai to assist the implementation of Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program (RNTCP), a state-run tuberculosis (TB) control initiative of Government of India.
Through the program, we work to help the government implement the RNTCP for:
- microscopic examination of sputum smears to identify sputum positive cases
- default retrieval
We have helped more than 500 people be screened and undergo treatment for TB, to date.
