Our Mission, Vision, Philosophy, and Goal
Operation ASHA’s mission is to eliminate tuberculosis among disadvantaged communities. We do this by providing treatment, counseling, education, and supportive services to tuberculosis patients in the communities where we work. We also implement awareness and preventive measures to prevent tuberculosis in these communities. In addition, we seek to build capacity among governments, public health organizations and other NGOs to adopt and implement our best practices.
A world free of tuberculosis.
Our Overarching Principles: Operation ASHA exists to serve its patients. Our all-encompassing philosophy is to improve the health of disadvantaged tuberculosis patients while at all times maintaining total transparency.
Our Partners: Successful partnerships are those that provide a win-win situation for every partner. Operation ASHA strives to establish successful partnerships that result in a collective impact against tuberculosis.
Our Role: Operation ASHA recognizes that it is the responsibility of individual governments to eliminate tuberculosis in their own countries. Donor and implementing organizations such as Operation ASHA can only do so much. Thus, rather than duplicate existing efforts, Operation ASHA leverages government infrastructure to supplement countries’ own efforts.
What gets measured, gets done.
Operation ASHA’s goal is to make TB treatment available to the most disadvantaged patients. We do this through focusing on patient convenience, community mobilization, and comprehensive counseling. Our management information systems include continuous monitoring and rigorous reporting.
