Operation ASHA thrives in developing and maintaining partnerships with the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
We operate 257 treatment centers in two countries. Based on our core values, we seek to treat, prevent, and diagnose tuberculosis.
Operation Asha is dedicated to bringing tuberculosis treatment and health services to the heart of India’s urban slums. We are India’s largest NGO in tuberculosis treatment and prevention, providing treatment to more than 4 million individuals with little access to basichealthcare, let alone medicines to treat TB. With treatment centers established in more than 1,500 slums and villages in India, our team plans to expand beyond India’s borders to other regions of the developing world afflicted with TB. “Tuberculosis is a scar on the face of the Earth,” says Dr. Shelly Batra, president of Operation ASHA.
TB is a scar we plan to erase, and together with our partners, supporters and you, we can achieve that goal by the UN Millennium Development Goal’s deadline: 2050.
