Girl covers mouth to prevent spread of TB

Operation ASHA is dedicated to bringing tuberculosis treatment and health services to the poorest of the poor in India’s urban slums and rural villages.

We are among the world’s largest NGOs in tuberculosis treatment and prevention, making these services available to more than 8.9 million people who have little access to basic healthcare, let alone medicines to treat TB. With treatment centers established in more than 4,000 slums and villages in 6 Indian states and 6 Cambodian provinces, our team plans to expand 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 will heal together with our partners, supporters, and you. We can achieve that goal by the UN Millennium Development Goal’s deadline: 2050.
