Multidrug Resistant (MDR) Tuberculosis is a growing public health epidemic in India. The non-profit organization Operation ASHA has expanded its role considerably over the past few years to stem this tide of TB transmission within both the poorest and the most prosperous communities, bringing innovative treatment protocols right to the patients' doorsteps. Dr. Shelly Batra, president of Operation ASHA, discusses the progress being made in this increasingly global public health campaign. Hosted by Dr. Maurice Pickard.
