The Corporate TB Pledge (CTP) program is a joint initiative of the Central TB Division, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India and USAID in collaboration with The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases, with the objective to develop a shared TB vision, in alignment with PM Narendra Modi’s vision of eliminating TB in India by 2025. The Corporate TB Pledge program was launched in April 2019 and offers a tiered approach for corporates to use their resources (human and financial), to combat TB, raise awareness of TB as a curable disease, and ultimately improve TB health outcomes.
The corporate shall be willing to contribute to Prime Minister’s vision of TB free India by 2025!
The corporate shall be willing to dedicate its vast pool of resources, management skills and reach and play a vital role in TB prevention and care
The corporate shall be willing to establish a TB Free Workplace Policy and ensure:
The corporate shall be able to leverage networks of other CTP members- including consulates, Business Associations, PSUs etc
The corporate shall be able to build synergies through Public- private partnerships and private – private partnerships.
Corporates may sign up at different tiers specifying their levels of commitment. The details for each Membership Tier are as follows:
Corporates sign up at specific levels of commitment initially. In case the corporate exceeds expectations (associated to the level of commitment they have signed up), technical evaluation is done and the process of graduating tier takes place. This will be done offline by the secretariat, however, the system should indicate the process and the way to graduate to the next tier in a creative and repetitive way to the corporates. As of now, 4 corporates have graduated tiers, based on their performance. Fresh Pledge is signed and submitted once a corporate has graduated tier.
