BRAC

BRAC started the TB Control Programme in 1984 as a pilot project in Manikganj Sadar Upazila (sub-district), which was extended to 10 other upazilas in 1992 in order to test the potential of scaling it up. Following the successful outcome in the pilot and the 10 scaled up sub-districts, BRAC was the first NGO to sign MoU with the Government of Bangladesh in April 1994 to expand the DOTS services.BRAC signed a MoU with NTP to increase coverage to 106 subdistricts in 2001 and further MoU signed in 2016. TB service expanded in academic institute, secondary/tertiary level hospitals, prisons, workplaces, remote areas and urban slums.
