EMF as a Social Justice Foundation believes that the right- based approach to protect the Rights of the TB Affected Communities as a Movement comprises the following strategic pillars.
1. Advocacy and Enabling Environment
2. Policy Influence and Program Development
3. Catalytic Force Development
4. Research and Documentation
5. Service Delivery and Monitoring
6. Resource Mobilization
7. Partnership development
With the support of the above Seven Strategic Pillars, EMF works with NTP as a partner to ensure that all Policies, Programmes, and Administrative Mechanisms are in consonance with the TB Affected Communities perspective and enforced and implemented with transparency and accountability both in the Government and Non Government sectors.
EMF as a rights-based NGO is committed to facilitate such perspective strongly flowing into, under the aegis of NTP, National Policies and Programmes from the bottom up taking care of specificities and strengths of each region and stake holders there in.
EMF has been predominantly playing its role in sound institution-building processes more specifically the NGO sector with high respect for decentralization at the level of the local bodies , at the community level and larger societal concern for the poverty- stricken from backward areas and vulnerable communities . And the same strategy is apt and a-must to the TB Affected Communities Protection Movement too, it believes that TB Affected Communities who are neglected become visible and gain confidence to access their entitlements as a right.
EMF likes partnership with NTP in the brief following spectrum in relationship to the above seven strategic pillars:
a) Building high public awareness and create a moral and facilitating force in selective pockets- the uncovered parts , of the country to stand by TB Affected Communities and protect their rights.
b) Undertakes a few selective assignments to look at the gaps in the policy framework, the Management framework and Program Development and Delivery process with a view to offer that rights-based perspective is adhered to by the Government, while it makes its policies and Programs for TB Affected Communities.
c) Undertakes research and documentation on the predicament of the majority of TB Affected Communities in precarious segments or regions –East and North East in our country who are vulnerable and are not treated well only to substantiate with ground level realities for better policy influence and program development followed by effective delivery.
As of matter of detailing on the above, the EMF would like to concentrate and work on the following partnership functions with NTP.
a. Under take the task of examining all factors that inhibit the enjoyment of rights of TB Affected Communities affected by indifference , HIV/ AIDS, maltreatment, and exploitation and offering appropriate changes both in policy and programs
b. Assist in evolving the tailor-made interventions for special care and protection of TB Affected Communities in distress, marginalized and disadvantaged TB Affected Communities , TB Affected Communities without family and TB Affected Communities and offering appropriate development practices both in policy and programs
c. Under take Studies and periodic reviews of existing policies, programmes and other activities on TB Affected Communities and draw effective delivery mechanism for their effective implementation in the best interest of TB Affected Communities bottom up.


2.Working on TB is one of our key priorities – in Partnership with Council of Scientific Industrial Research (CSIR) work has been undertaken on the analysis of the TB Genome. Phase one and two have been completed. The objective was to increase understanding of the TB Genome towards new drug discovery.
