How to hinder TB control

Date published:



The five steps not to take are to 
  • Incentivise national TB programmes to obscure rather than highlight programmatic challenges.
  • Rush to medical or technological solutions rather than systems strengthening.
  • Focus on purchasing drugs for multi drug-resistant TB and ignore essential infrastructure requirements to deliver them effectively.
  • Leave the unregulated private sector to incorrectly dispense antimicrobials.
  • Start and stop TB programme funding suddenly.
