Prevention of TB

While the challenges of TB care and control are multidimensional, it is important to strengthen the community response and make the community voice heard against the threatening TB epidemic of the country through meaningful and effective participation of the CBOs/CSOs. With the shift to universal access of TB care, the role of CBOs/CSOs will become more critical in terms of consolidating and scaling up those key community linkages with the essential services, especially in the underserved, difficult-toreach areas and with marginalized, criminalized and migrated population groups across the country. There is also huge task and challenge to link the non-formal and private healthcare providers effectively to the National TB Program.
