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
  • DOTS
  • default retrieval

We have helped more than 500 people be screened and undergo treatment for TB, to date.
