Mumbai, India, September 12, 2013 – Partnerships with local health authorities support community engagement programs to raise awareness, provide preventive solutions and counter many myths surrounding tuberculosis.
Sandoz Global TB, based out of India, has collaborated with the Indian Government’s Ministry of Health to prepare an awareness film on the management of tuberculosis in public health centers where DOTS (directly observed treatment short course) strategy is implemented.
These public health centers are run under the guidance of the National TB control program of India and provide medical consultation, diagnosis and treatment for TB patients, free of cost. The film reiterates the importance of early diagnosis and completion of treatment.
A preview of the awareness film is available on tbdots.com, our global TB initiative site.
