India has the highest rate of tuberculosis (TB) in the world, accounting for nearly a fifth of the global incidences of the disease. Two deaths occur every 3 minutes in India due to tuberculosis
Since early 2015, the Irish Red Cross has been assisting the Indian Red Cross Society in their effort to combat the spread of tuberculosis and to further control MDR-TB through the prevention and management of tuberculosis programme.
The scope of the intervention, which covers two districts in Punjab state, is especially aimed at patients who default from their treatment, as they run the risk of developing multi-drug resistant tuberculosis.
