  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

Through this partnership TRS will provide high quality and affordable radiology services to Americas and South East Asia where the patients are diagnosed with TB and scale up innovative approaches to TB

BANGALORE, India, May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ --  Teleradiology Solutions LLP. (TRS), a global provider of remote radiology services, announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide remote radiology services for STOP TB Partnership through UNOPS for Americas and South East Asia. Teleradiology Solutions will be responsible for providing imaging services in over 20 countries in this region. The  United Nations Office for Project Services  (UNOPS) is an operational arm of the United Nations, dedicated to implementing projects for the United  Nations System. The STOP TB Partnership (STBP) is a unique international organization at the forefront of the global TB response, bringing together expertise, innovation, medicines, and diagnostics, and people-centered services from a broad range of partners with a shared vision to end TB by 2030.


This contract, which runs from April 2022 through March 2023, was awarded by UNOPS as part of its ongoing efforts to provide affordable health care, particularly remote diagnostic imaging services, to poor and vulnerable populations.

"According to WHO, nearly 1 in 3 people with TB disease is still not diagnosed and notified. Access to subspecialized radiologists across the globe, availability of new tools and renewed political commitment have offered a lifeline for people affected by TB and hope for success in the fight against TB. Teleradiology contributes to patient care by the quick reporting of radiologic studies in remote locations where there is a scarcity of radiology practitioners reducing the time for triage of TB," said Mr. Kishor Joshi, Chief Business officer, Teleradiology Solutions.

Dr Arjun Kalyanpur, CEO & Chief Radiologist, Teleradiology solutions highlighted, "It is tragic that we continue to see mortality from tuberculosis in this day and age. Early detection is key to cure and prevention of spread and Teleradiology has potential for significant impact, just as it has demonstrated in other public health concerns such as stroke and cancer. Our collaboration with UNOPS gives us the opportunity to tackle this disease on a global footing to ensure maximum impact, and is in keeping with our mission to leverage technology to deliver quality radiologic diagnostics to every corner of the globe."
