The Axshya India project is running by SPAR-Ghatsila Project in Baharagora, Dumuria, Musabani and Potka Block of Jharkhand since February, 2014. The project Axshya (meaning ‘TB Free’), is ‘A Civil Society Initiative to Strengthen TB Care and Control project in India’. The project aims to improve access to quality TB care and control through a partnership between government and civil society. It will support India’s Revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP) to expand its reach, visibility and effectiveness, and engage community-based providers to improve TB services, especially for women, children, marginalized, vulnerable and TB-HIV co-infected populations.
Target Group: Multi-drug Resistance TB Patients, Tribal, poor and backward communities.
Goal of the Project: Decrease morbidity and mortality due to DR-TB in India and improve access to quality TB care and control services through enhanced civil society participation.
