Tuberculosis:  Better Treatment Access in India

Tuberculosis: Better Treatment Access in India

Host: Maurice Pickard, MD

Guest: Shelly Batra, MD

One-third of the world’s tuberculosis cases strike in India, where unfavorable logistics and modest infrastructure often hinder efforts to combat the disease. Operation Asha comprises a series of registered non-profit clinics, managing the coordination of tuberculosis care in some of India’s poorest communities. Dr. Shelly Batra, president of Operation Asha, joins host Dr. Maurice Pickard to discuss their organizational strategies for community-based TB care.
