Tuberculosis is also one of the leading causes of mortality in India killing more than 300,000 people in India every year. A single patient can infect 10 or more people in a year. But if treated properly, TB is curable. It requires at least 6 months of treatment. Government of India under its TB control programme, Revised National Tuberculosis Control Programme (RNTCP), offers free treatment and medicines at various health centres and government hospitals.  DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment short course) is a stratgey recommended by WHO, is the only effective means of TB treatment and is practiced in more than 180 countries.
 
MDR-TB Partnership has come up with an innovative approach to create awareness on Tuberculosis among children through edutainment and games. The package “Stop TB Carnival” is a CD-Rom based campaign with games and interactive learning on Tuberculosis.
