Description

Dr. Shelly Batra, founder of Operation ASHA, is an innovator in TB service delivery. Her organization combats the disease in some of most challenging settings in India, with proven results. But to the patients they serve, Operation ASHA’s staff are more than just health workers—they are leaders, educators, friends and family. See how Operation ASHA is making a difference and defining best practices for TB care. Tuberculosis (TB) is a worldwide epidemic that kills more than 1.5 million people each year. Healthcare workers are on the front lines of this epidemic, putting themselves at risk of TB exposure and infection on a daily basis while caring for others. Healthcare workers deserve to be protected from the devastation of TB. More can be done, today and in the future. We must push towards the only viable, long-term solution: the development of a new, effective TB vaccine. Share this with your friends - especially those in the healthcare community!
