Organization Description:
World Vision India’s almost pan-country presence is characterized by strong networks and alliances built at all levels. While World Vision India is known to be an early responder when natural disaster strikes, we work along with children, families and communities through long –term projects to address issues of Health, Nutrition, Tuberculosis, HIV, WASH, Education, Child Protection, Climate Change, Gender and development, Food security, Livelihoods, Youth Development, Disability and Humanitarian emergency responses across the country in partnership with government, civil society organisations and corporates. The primary business units are known as Area programs at sub-district level in addition to special time-bound issue-based projects. All our interventions are directly aligned to the Government’s program and policy and we collaborate with local and National Government functionaries – Eg. In Health – National, Health Mission, Revised National TB Control program, Inter-agency Groups (IAG) for disaster response and ICDS (Integrated child development scheme).

We work closely with national/state/ district Government functionaries especially for TB, MNCH and Nutrition interventions in our respective target areas. We are part of 32 strategic alliances at the national level on development and children’s issues, to influence policies. As part of Axshya implementation, there is consistent and quality interaction with Central TB Division, State TB cells and District TB officers for program implementation support and local level advocacy.
World Vision India has a long history of implementing projects funded by U.S. government, Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria, and other government-funded health projects, including public-private partnerships. In 2001, World Vision India, through the CIDA-funded Shifa project built DOTS providers and partners’ capacity in TB control and implemented community based DOTS in Hyderabad. The project introduced community led TB care groups, a pioneering effort involving cured TB patients

Community care groups, advocacy for TB patients to avail Goverment schemes and entitlements, school-based TB awareness and urban TB programs are key interventions for WV India with special focus on Pediatric TB case detection and follow up.

Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

TB Care Delivery:
World Vision India implements special projects for TB care delivery, directly aligned to Government of India's National TB Program- Currently we have project sites in 9 locations (urban and rural) forTB care and control and TB-HIV linkages.

Drug-Resistant TB:
World Vision India is partnering with local CBOs for care and counseling of MDR TB patients and linking to Government schemes for nutrition support.

World Vision India is implementing special HIV projects for People and Child Living with HIV and periodic TB screening is included, helping increasing access to TB diagnostics, INH prophylaxis as part of HIV care and treatment and positive prevention interventions. Patients detected with TB are referred/ accompanied to nearest ICT (Integrated counseling and testing) centres for HIV screening.

Laboratory Strengthening:
Increased access to Pediatric TB diagnosis, local level advocacy for TB Diagnostics are part of lab strengthening efforts. We are exploring with Goverment of West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh States to work on recruitment and training, montioring of Lab Technicians in designated microscopy centres as part of NGO - PP Schemes of GoI.

New Diagnostics:
We hope to partner with ICMR for point of care diagnostics (such as Truenat) once rolled out in our areas of operations.

Operational research is essential for strengthening evidence base for effective TB Elimination interventions and for engaging with key stakeholders such as private sector,where most of the presumptive / diagnosed TB cases seek services in India. Therefore, we are involved with partners in operational research to understand the treatment outcomes of privately managed patients as well as plan to study the process and cost-benefit of pediatric TB diagnosis, barriers to adherence and dynamics of TB control in certain pockets as a tea gardens in India.
