I have seen first hand the work that Operation ASHA has done, visited their centers and talked with their CHWs and patients. By all means they are helping their communities to combat the TB epidemic at the greatest ease to the patients possible. Moreover, they are providing jobs to slum dwellers to work as CHWs. These CHWs are having outstanding impact and are making more money than they normally would be able to coming out of the slums -- all while giving back to their communities. Great work, I highly recommend OpASHA to all.
