Free TB testing in India
Nearly 1.8 million people in India develop TB every year. LEPRA supports the national tuberculosis control programme to develop effective projects to control the disease and reach out to those in need of treatment. Work includes diagnosis and treatment provision, health education activities and field research.
Testing is of key importance to ensure the correct medication is given for a quick and effective recovery. LEPRA organises health camps in which people with suspected tuberculosis can come to be tested for free.
Please donate now to support this work. We rely on the help of people like you to make sure we can continue with our important programmes here and around the world.
