At Metropolis, we all understand that underdiagnosis and multi-drug resistance are two aspects of Tuberculosis that require timely, accurate, and accessible diagnostic support. For more than a decade, Metropolis has provided the most comprehensive range of Tuberculosis tests, all of which are approved and recommended by WHO. The company has a dedicated Infectious Disease Division #Microxpert that has been assisting patients and clinicians from diagnosis to treatment by providing access to accurate lab results and WHO/NTEP approved advisory services via a novel model developed by Metropolis Healthcare's Innovation Cell. Metropolis has collaborated and worked with Central and State Government departments, Public Health departments, and Municipal Corporations across the country.
Metropolis believes that its efforts in a variety of ways will help to strengthen the government's efforts to meet the TB elimination goals by 2025.
