Tuberculosis and health sector reform in Bangladesh [Country Case Report]
The objective of the reforms in HPSP is to provide cost-effective, sustainable, quality services to those in need through an essential service package that includes control of communicable diseases such as tuberculosis and leprosy. Tuberculosis services will become more accessible as community clinics deliver essential health services for every 6000 population. Non-public health care providers, who contribute significantly to health services in the country, will be involved in service delivery. The main challenge is to maintain the quality of successful projects, such as tuberculosis control, during the transition period.
