IPE Global has won a project for Outsourcing of day-to-day administration and pay-rolling of RNTCP Consultants' Network (India) (2015)

We have won a project for supporting the World Health Organization (WHO) for managing the pool of consultants of the Revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP) network. In 1992, the Government of India, together with the World Health Organization (WHO) and Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), reviewed the National TB Programme and concluded that it suffered from managerial weakness, inadequate funding, over-reliance on x-ray, non-standard treatment regimens, low rates of treatment completion, and lack of systematic information on treatment outcomes.

At present, we support the RNTCP programme through 90 consultants
