Knowledge Management Portal for TB Mukt Bharat

About Project

The National Tuberculosis Elimination Program (NTEP) of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, India, in its pursuit to eradicate Tuberculosis (TB) by 2025, acknowledges the pivotal role of a widespread movement termed 'Jan Andolan for TB'. To bolster this initiative, a National Technical Support Unit for Advocacy, Communication, and Social Mobilization (ACSM-NTSU) has been established, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). The unit, with The Union South East Asia office as the secretariat, aimed to develop a knowledge management portal for TB-related ACSM content. This portal is serving as a comprehensive repository housing various tools, documents, guidelines, and success stories pertinent to TB ACSM. Through enhanced accessibility and availability, stakeholders, including state TB program teams, partner agencies, government functionaries, and collaborating practitioners, will benefit from rapid access, sharing, documentation of success stories, and cross-learning opportunities, ultimately bolstering efforts towards TB elimination.
