Paper Title: Exploration of TB Control Programme in India: An Analytical Review

Abstract: India’s Revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP) has made considerable progress in reducing the burden of tuberculosis (TB) in the last decade. However, diagnostic and treatment services by the RNTCP are mostly limited to patients accessing care in the public health system. India’s vast, heterogeneous private sector is hardly engaged in TB control. Thus, approximately one million TB patients are either undiagnosed or diagnosed but treated outside the RNTCP. Available evidence suggests that quality of TB care in suboptimal and TB patients (both in the public and private sector) struggle to get rapid, accurate diagnosis and treatment, with an appropriate system to support adherence. This results in delayed diagnosis, ongoing transmission and worsening of the drug-resistant TB situation. Recently, the RNTCP articulated a comprehensive National Strategic Plan (NSP) and formulated the Standards for TB Care in India to provide universal access to quality-assured TB diagnosis and treatment by 2017. Several promising public-private mix models have emerged, and TB advocacy is finally getting traction. Policymakers and political leaders in India now have a unique opportunity to make an impact by making sure the NSP is fully and comprehensively implemented. This will save lives and ensure that the missing million patients get the care they deserve.
