“Eliminate TB Deaths in India through awareness, notification & case finding within our lifetime”
Each day nearly 1,000 die from tuberculosis (TB) in India, even though we have the methods for detecting, treating and stopping the spread of TB. The burden of TB is high in Madhya Pradesh. For example, in the district of Indore with a population of 3 million there are 25,000 symptomatic cases of TB of which about 4,500 cases are put on treatment. Additional cases are under treatment by private physicians.
In 2010, CETI initiated innovative projects for TB elimination. CETI has teamed with Rotary International, Lions International, Doctors, Government Officials and other local NGOs to work for selected interventions using quality improvement processes which will lead to TB elimination and control.
