95% of the people from rural India do not know about T.B. and AIDS. Many are also not aware that T.B. is curable, resulting in many deaths that have been attributed to this disease. The government is also unable to educate people about T.B. as well as the NGOs due to their financial constraints. The medicines are expensive and are not within reach of the poor, as the hospitals are located in urban areas away from many of the villages.
Many of the T.B. affected people resort to selling their belongings in order to purchase the medicine. Because of the cost of medicine and the length of the treatment, many die of utter poverty and starvation.
NASA works to identify T.B. patients and the village health workers take them to the government hospitals for medicine. NASA conducts many health camps and gives education on T.B. NASA uses a slide show and street plays to create awareness of T.B.
