KHPT has received a grant of Rs 86 lakh from Johnson & Johnson for a project titled “Involvement of medical graduates to develop a sustainable system for standards of TB care & TB elimination in private health sector”. The project aims to establish Kshaya Muktha Karnataka Kendras for TB elimination in selected private health facilities in Bengaluru through the engagement of trained medical graduates who will serve as Catalysts for TB Mukt Bharat. The project will identify facilities with presumptive TB patients, work with the management to establish notification systems, and capacitate the Catalysts to establish Cough corners/TB cells/ DR TB centres, as well as conduct CMEs in-house. The initiative will be implemented for a period of one year from December 15, 2021 in Bengaluru Urban district.
