Increasing capacity of health facilities to successfully treat and monitor TB patients

SHOPS Plus builds the capacity of private sector facilities to deliver high quality TB care through training and continuous quality improvement processes in collaboration with National TB and Leprosy Control Program. At the start of activities the project facilitated agreements between state governments (to supply commodities free of charge to providers) and individual private health facilities (to charge agreed-upon prices for consultations and other services, but not charge for drugs) and the National Association of General Medical Practitioners (to oversee uniform implementation of the agreement). SHOPS Plus and the intermediary organizations conduct training in tuberculosis treatment using national guidelines and curricula adapted to the needs of the private sector. The project and its stakeholders also developed a standard process for conducting supportive supervision visits to ensure consistent quality standards are maintained.
