In implementation, our model is very simple. Our community health workers take delivery of treatment to the doorsteps of the poor. They look for symptomatics within their communities, collect samples, transport them to labs and communicate results. For those who have positive sputum result, or persistent symptoms, they ensure other tests like X-ray/ CBNAAT/ FNAC and clinical examination till the person is proved free of TB or prescribed TB treatment. Some our workers are previously treated TB patients. eDetection Application helps them maneuver all steps of the long and tedious diagnostic process.
The moment a patient is diagnosed, the worker provides counselling to the patient and family with the eCounselling Application. Then, adherence is ensured with eCompliance application.
Operation ASHA has applied its expertise to other health areas and beyond. Examples are Adolescent Health Empowerment Program, Hemophilia, Diabetes, Motorcycle Ambulance Service and Adolescent Health Yuva Nestham Program.
