ABAN CARES, a shipping company, has been funding the running costs of the REACH DOTS centre at Minjur since 2011. A DOTS centre is a place where people can receive counseling and guidance services to access government health centers providing free diagnosis and treatment for TB. The DOTS centre helps patients in early detection of the disease and ensures that patients complete treatment for 6-8 months through the DOTS strategy.

ABAN CARES is stopping TB by curing patients and stopping the chain of transmission in the community.

” By helping out in small way, we want to stop TB by making TB care easily accessible to people in rural areas.” says a representative of ABAN CARES.
