Project Background

India has the highest burden of Tuberculosis (TB) in the world, accounting for more than 27% of the global TB incidence.

Mumbai has provided an example of improved urban health services, in terms of scaling up the administrative capacity of the programme, as well as investing in the delivery of services through the Mumbai Mission for TB Control. With the changing epidemiology, availability of new diagnostic modalities, treatment and adherence technologies, Mumbai is moving towards TB free Mumbai by 2025. Focused activities have been strategized to eliminate TB in Mumbai by 2025.
