NEW DELHI, AUGUST 27 :

Fujifilm India, a diagnostic imaging and information systems for healthcare facilities launched a national campaign drive to increase awareness and eliminate the spread of Tuberculosis in India.

As part of the campaign titled "Never Stop: Screening to Reduce Diagnostic Delays", Fujifilm India aims at increasing awareness on TB and identify individuals having TB symptoms among vulnerable and marginalized sections of the society by introducing a mobile van with an X-ray facility along with a field team and community volunteers.

In line with the Government's mission to make India TB free by 2025, Fujifilm India has launched this campaign in association with National TB Elimination Programme (NTEP). Through its existing network of labs, the NTEP will help in TB testing and provide TB medicines as per the program guidelines.

The Union

The International Union Against TB and Lung Disease (The Union), a global leader in lung health, will provide technical support through the United States Agency for International Development's (USAID iDEFEAT TB Project.

The campaign

The campaign is also a part of the 'Corporate TB Pledge (CTP)', a USAID supported initiative launched with the Government of India in 2019 to galvanize India's corporate sector to combat TB, raise awareness of TB as a curable disease, and, ultimately, improve TB health outcomes. The CTP provides corporations with the flexibility to contribute to TB elimination efforts at different levels depending on their resources. As a CTP 'Diamond' level member, the highest level of CTP participation, Fujifilm has developed a plan to increase TB awareness, screening, and treatment within the company setting; and serves as a CTP "champion,' mobilizing other companies to join TB elimination efforts. Through the campaign, Fujifilm will be offering door-to-door awareness on TB and provide instant interpretation of mobile digital X-rays using Qure.ai's artificial intelligence solution. This community-based TB screening initiative will cater to Truckers/Migrant workers, Slum Dwellers/Rural and Semi-urban population in and around industrial pockets in selected areas of 25 districts across states/UT Chandigarh, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan for the next nine months.
