Operation ASHA (OpASHA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2005 which aims to bring tuberculosis (TB) treatment to low-income areas. The organization’s primary work is curing TB and preventing Multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in India and Cambodia.

This initiative makes tuberculosis treatment available to the most disadvantaged patients by employing non-medical counsellors to monitor patients and delivering treatment to patients’ door steps in disadvantaged areas. In addition, Operation ASHA establishes DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment, Short-Course) clinics in existing and accessible locations such as businesses, temples, and pharmacies.

Through mobilizing communities and promoting education and learning, Operation ASHA has reached 4.9 million households, over 2,053 villages and slums in India and Cambodia, reducing communicable disease and infant and maternal mortality.
