Increasing availability of TB services in the private sector
SHOPS Plus supports increased TB detection, diagnosis, and treatment by improving the availability of services provided by private sector providers through an integrated, multi-cadre hub-and-spoke provider network. The project recruited local intermediary organizations in Lagos and Kano States to work with network providers to improve tuberculosis service delivery. These organizations are responsible for training, conducting supportive supervision, ensuring data quality and complete reporting. They are also responsible for conducting contact tracing, and working with network private facilities to access tuberculosis drugs and reagents through the public sector.
