Tuberculosis is the world's largest public health epidemic and India bears a disproportionately large burden, accounting for approximately a quarter of the world’s TB cases. It remains one of the principal challenges on India's health and wellness scale. India is the highest TB burden country in the world and World Health Organisation (WHO) statistics for 2016 give an estimated incidence figure of 2.6 million cases of TB for India out of a global incidence of 10.4 million cases. Among 2.2 million TB cases, an estimated 1 million cases are missed yearly in India.  


To address this overwhelming encumber of TB infected population, Humana People to People India (HPPI) works with Tuberculosis as an integrated component of several health and community project as well as through targeted intervention. In 2017-18, a special action on was conducted in the Homeless Resource and Service Centre, which is operated by HPPI, reaching out to homeless citizens in four districts of Delhi with TB awareness, detection, linkage to TB services with special focus on helping patients to complete their treatment.

Between March 2016 and November 2017 HPPI joined hands with The International Union against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease as an implementation partner in the project Axshya in 11 districts Delhi. The overarching objectives of the Project Axshya was to support Government of India’s Revised National Tuberculosis Control Programme (RNTCP) to expand its reach, visibility, effectiveness and to engage community-based providers to improve TB services, especially for women and children, marginalised, vulnerable and TB-HIV co-infected populations. More than 678,000 households were reached with information about TB and linkage to TB services when needed.
