About ALERT INDIA:

ALERT-INDIA, a non-profit organization is committed to improve the health and social status of people affected by leprosy and other communicable diseases with special focus on vulnerable groups such as tribal, women, children and disabled through people-centric disease control programs and community initiatives.

LTBI project

ALERT INDIA has been awarded a project on controlling the Latent TB Infections in four districts of Gujarat. India, with one-fourth of the global burden of TB, is estimated to have around 40% of the total population infected with TB. The lifetime risk of reactivation of the infection in healthy individual is 10%, with 5% developing TB disease during first 2 to 5 years after the infection. Treating 40% of the population after having determined the infection through appropriate tests and consultation is neither feasible nor rational or practical approach, thereby, emphasizing a need for a strategy to control the dormant infection and never let it grow into a full fledge TB disease.
In order to achieve the above, LTBI project has been introduced with funding from “Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria “(GFATM) having William J Clinton Foundation (WJCF) & Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) as the Principal Recipient (PR) and ALERT INDIA as the Sub Recipient (SR) for the grant.
