I continued my work this summer into the Fall of 2011. I am focused on filling the gaps in tuberculosis patient care in India by utilizing locally appropriate communication technologies. I am based in Mumbai and operate in coordination with the World Health Organization, Medic Mobile (, and the Revised National TB Controlle Program. The work is around conceiving, building and implementing a scalable mobile phone tool which informs and incentivizes patients through the process of completing TB treatment.
