TB Call To Action

In January 2016, we were awarded the Tuberculosis Call to Action project by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) after a competitive application process. Through this four-year (2016-2020) project, we seek to spread our organisation’s reach to the entire country and transform the TB landscape in India by improving access to high quality services and reducing suffering and deaths.

Strategic Objectives 

  • To increase commitment and investment in TB from the public and private sectors at the national and state levels by 2020.
  • To promote increased knowledge and ownership of TB among private healthcare providers.
  • To foster an enabling environment and empower patients, civil society and affected communities to seek accountability and demand high-quality TB services.
  • To advocate for evidence-based and effective policies.
  • To identify and facilitate scale-up of successful, innovative models for provider and community engagement.
  • To raise the profile of TB at the national and state levels.
