  • Overview

    Multidrug Resistant (MDR) Tuberculosis is a growing public health epidemic in India. Experts estimate there could easily be over 5 million cases of MDR TB at present, with each untreated patient capable of spreading the disease to 10-15 others per year. The non-profit organization Operation ASHA has expanded its role considerably over the past few years to stem this tide of TB transmission from the poorest to the most prosperous communities, bringing innovative treatment protocols right to the patients' doorsteps. Dr. Shelly Batra, president of Operation ASHA, discusses the progress being made in this increasingly global public health campaign. Hosted by Dr. Maurice Pickard.
