Please tell us how your organization is contributing to your country's national TB control plan:
Lack of basic health knowledge amongst the people of District Punjgoor, Baluchistan Pakistan causing an increase in pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). It is very unfortunate that there is only one hospital in the province providing proper treatment to patients suffering from TB. According to the authentic reports, as many as 15 to 20 people are diagnosed at the TB Sanatorium on a daily basis. This highlights the grim situation in the province. In most of the cases, patients carelessly stop taking drugs after two months as the pain and coughing go away. But they remain vulnerable because it takes eight months of drug intake to completely get rid of TB. It is also very unfortunate that the situation in whole Balochistan is comparatively worse than other provinces as its people do not take precautionary measures. Basic health units or district headquarters hospitals refer TB patients to Quetta for treatment. The shortage of medicines in interior Balochistan is another factor. Government and other NGOs are trying their best to make things better but the main problem is lack of education, as people know nothing about the disease, but still much has to be done in the area for which DOC has put forward to be an implementing partner of The National TB Control Program.

TB Care Delivery:
The President DOC hereby declare the donor organization (National TB Control Program) that the documents submitted but in case of any additional requisite, I on behalf of the organization ensure to provide it accordingly and appropriately. An estimated 9.4 million new cases of TB occur each
year. TB exists in all parts of the world, but there are
22 HBCs1
that account for around 80% of the world’s
TB cases. Globally, the highest rates of TB per capita
are in the African Region (Figure 9). Most people who
develop TB have drug-susceptible forms of TB (more
than 95% of all cases worldwide): that is, TB that can
be treated and cured with six months of chemotherapy
using ‘first-line’ drugs.2

The so-called ‘DOTS’ strategy was developed in
the mid-1990s as the internationally-recommended
approach to TB control, and was subsequently
expanded worldwide. The strategy was built on model
programmes developed in African countries from the
late 1980s, and has five components:
