    Influencing TB policy and practice in Bangladesh using a Public-Private Mix approach

    PPP bangladeshIn a high TB burden country such as Bangladesh, National TB Control Programmes (NTPs) often adopt the Stop TB Strategy. These are delivered primarily through government-run health facilities, but these programmes often have little contact with private medical practitioners (PMPs).

    COMDIS-HSD developed a Public-Private Mix (PPM) model to involve private doctors in the National TB Programme’s urban TB control activities. We piloted the PPM model in 4 research sites in Dhaka city. The study came up with 6 key policy messages and 6 key research findings.
