Non-Governmental Organisations ( NGOs) play a vital role in the fight to eliminate TB. Few NGOs, dedicatedly working towards the elimination of Tuberculosis, are involved in supporting partnerships for TB Care and Control in India ensuring public education- mass/ mid media, social mobilization for greater participation in RNTCP, engaging all care providers, coordinating on TB/HIV and advocacy to increase political commitment to ending TB. The platform provides an opportunity for them to gain technical assistance and avenues to roll out the TB projects and collaborate for funding opportunities.
The Corporate TB Pledge (CTP) program is a joint initiative of the Central TB Division, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India and USAID in collaboration with The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases, with the objective to develop a shared TB vision, in alignment with PM Narendra Modi’s vision of eliminating TB in India by 2025. The Corporate TB Pledge program was launched in April 2019 and offers a tiered approach for corporates to use their resources (human and financial), to combat TB, raise awareness of TB as a curable disease, and ultimately improve TB health outcomes.
