This project brief describes PATH’s contributions to developing public-private mix (PPM) approaches to TB control in India. With support from the United States Agency for International Development, PATH supported a PPM pilot project in Andhra Pradesh that aimed to train private chemists in identifying presumed TB cases and referring them to government diagnosis centers, promoting community awareness of TB prevention, and reducing the sale of TB drugs to persons without a prescription. This project provided valuable lessons and insights into applying PPM strategies to future TB control projects in India and elsewhere.
