“Eliminate TB Deaths in India through awareness, notification & case finding within our lifetime”
Each day nearly 1,000 die from tuberculosis (TB) in India, even though we have the methods for detecting, treating and stopping the spread of TB. In Indore, with a population of 3.2 million people, there about 7000 symptomatic cases of TB of which about 5,500 cases are put on treatment. Thousands go untreated and each in turn infects another 15 patients and the TB epidemic continues.
In 2010, CETI initiated innovative projects for TB elimination.
In 2013 CETI teamed together with Rotary Club of Indore to write a Global Grant for TB. Working with Government’s TB program (RNTCP) CETI, increased awareness and notification of TB cases in Indore, Barwani, Ujjain and Dewas.
In 2017, CETI piloted a campaign “Lambi Kashi Deema Bukar” (long cough and light fever) and conducted active case finding in high-risk ( slum) areas of Indore.
In 2018 CETI is scaling the active case finding to a population of 10 lac in Indore.
In 2021 CETI will help make Indore the most TB Free City in India.
