Saksham Pravaah is a TISS project that implements counselling services for Drug Resistant (DR) TB patients in collaboration with the Mumbai District Tuberculosis (TB) Control Society (MDTCS). The programme supported by the Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria was initiated in August 2014 as an extension of the HIV counselling capacity building initiative. Saksham means "Capable" or “Self‐ reliant” in Sanskrit.
Based on the experience of Mumbai, Saksham in partnership with the Central TB Division (CTD), Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has scaled up this project to Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Karnataka. In this expanded phase of the project, the goal is to strengthen National TB control program (with special focus on MDR and XDR TB) in states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Rajasthan through structural and psycho-social support interventions.
