TB CONTROL PROGRAM
Tuberculosis (TB) is a major public Health problem in Bangladesh since long. The
Bangladesh TB program has already achieved its global targets for case detection and
treatment success rates. However, there is now consensus that meeting these targets
alone is not enough to reduce morbidity, mortality and transmission of TB. Delays in
case finding are a major problem in Bangladesh. Innovative and sustainable
approaches are needed to increase universal access to TB care in order to ensure that
all TB patients in the urban and rural communities are able to make routine and early
use of high quality diagnosis and treatment services.
