India bears the highest burden of tuberculosis in the world, killing an estimated 480,000 Indians every year, which is more than 1,300 every day. That is almost one person dying every minute.

CARE India through the Axshya project is constantly working towards identifying Tuberculosis and Tuberculosis/HIV co-infection cases through home visits by Community Volunteers in 17 cities across 15 districts in affected states of Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Jharkhand.

Post identification CARE works with the government ensuring free medication, advice on treatment, ensuring timely visits to Public Health Centres, intake of proper nutrition and adherence to treatment. In last 6 years, Axshya project has identified 17,000 cases of people suffering from TB and ensured their proper treatment for a complete cure. But, many more need our help. We can’t do it alone.

Help us in creating a TB free India.
