Operation Asha is treating Tuberculosis in urban slum areas through the use of local counsellors to spread awareness and technologies to observe patients on a regular basis.

Operation Asha is the largest NGO in India focusing on Tuberculosis (TB) treatment in urban slum areas. Since 2005, it has been addressing TB-related problems through counselling for patients that have been discriminated against and who are largely ignorant about the disease. Counselling is provided by local community members who are trained to treat patients and regularly monitor the spreading of TB. Operation Asha has also set up treatment centres to monitor patients with a biometric attendance system.
