Cost of Treating TB
Operation ASHA works closely with India’s government program, the National Tuberculosis Program (RNTCP), and receive an estimated $115per patient in the value of donated tuberculosis medicines, hospital care, and diagnostic services from the government.
In addition to free services and medicines from the Government, treating each patient costs OpASHA just $80.
OpASHA spends the substantial part of this amount on salaries and program expenses for community workers and and community partners.
The Government/ RNTCP also awards a grant for providing TB treatment and other services. The grant is usually received two years after work is started in an area. The grant covers nearly half of Operation ASHA’s costs of $80 per patient. This adds to Operation ASHA’s financial sustainability.
