Millions of people are still dying from TB, a curable disease
Tuberculosis (TB) remains the world's most lethal infectious disease killer -- leading to more deaths than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined. Not only that, but TB is a completely curable disease.
Operation ASHA trains and employs technology-equipped community health workers to combat TB
Operation ASHA helps to combat this disease on all fronts, from screening and diagnosis to helping patients make sure they complete treatment. Meeting our project goal will enable us to treat and cure 25 patients of TB in the slums of Delhi.
$80 is all it takes to cure a disadvantaged patient of TB and change a life
Your donation will have a far-reaching impact. With just $80, a disadvantaged patient can be cured of TB. Getting a patient diagnosed, on treatment, and successfully completing treatment both helps prevent the further spread of TB as well as the development of drug-resistant TB, which is much harder to treat. Your donation will help a child go back to school, a breadwinner return to their job, and save a beloved family member's life.
Cure 25 TB patients
A patient cured of TB now has the hope and health she needs to keep moving forward in her life.
