  • Overview

    Dr. Maurice Pickard speaks with Dr. Shelly Batra, gynecologist and Medical Director for Operation Asha based in New Delhi, who expanded her vision for better women's health by confronting a well established taboo in her culture. Women are fearful about seeking medical care for tuberculosis, as this diagnosis often selectively leads to loss of jobs, marginalization in the community, and even exclusion from their family units, in contrast to men.
