Treating 3500 Poor Tuberculosis Patients in India

OpASHA's Innovative eCompliance System

Inside OpASHA
Wall Street Journal gives this year's Technology Innovation Award to Operation ASHA in the  Health-Care IT category
“Operation ASHA uses grass-roots human effort, combined with fingerprint and computer technology, to ensure that disadvantaged patients take the full course of medicine. That's a crucial step in reducing the emergence of drug-resistant forms of TB.” Read detailed coverage of the awards here. It was also covered in The Wall Street Journal's print edition on 16th Oct.

BBC World News aired Operation ASHA on Sunday, Nov 25 in the program 'Keeping Safe', part of series Horizons, that explores "ideas and businesses that may succeed in tackling the planet's biggest challenges". BBC anchor interviewed Dr. Shelly Batra, President, about how Operation ASHA is using its innovative eCompliance technology to treat TB and to prevent fatal forms of Drug Resistant TB. To watch the video, click here.

From the President’s desk.
“Welcome to India, the land of Gandhi and Mother Teresa. The country of 700 million mobile phones but not enough toilets. The country where starvation deaths do NOT make headlines, where slavery exists, where inspite of the economic boom and billions of $$ spent on health programs, the government has not been able to fulfill its promise to its citizens, of affordable, equitable, and accessible health care”, says Dr. Shelly Batra in her talk on Health for BOP in Pinnacle, Indian School of Business, Hyderabad.
Read a brief synopsis of her talk in her blog.
