We at the Respiratory Research Foundation of India strive to spread the message that Tuberculosis (TB) is curable, Asthma is controllable and smoking is an avoidable problem. Our organization has been actively involved in creating awareness on common respiratory illnesses like Asthma, Tuberculosis by organizing seminars, lectures, debates and panel discussions.
