Bulletin of the World Health Organization - Control of Tuberculosis in an Urban Setting in Nepal: Public–private Partnership, WHO. URL-http://apps.who.int/iris/ In Nepal, over 10 000 new cases of smear-positive TB are notified each year (13). In urban areas, 50% of patients with TB are estimated to be managed in the private sector (14) (almost all licenced private practitioners are concentrated in the urban centres); these patients are unregistered. The quality of care for TB patients provided by private practitioners generally is very poor (15), leading to delayed cure, increased numbers of chronic transmitters, and drug resistance, and hence to an increasing incidence of TB. Most patients who use private practitioners are very poor. After the Nepal NTP developed a well-functioning strategy for TB control in the public sector, the programme felt
it appropriate to focus on the private sector. The Nepal NTP and the research team decided to develop a tailor-made public–private partnership for the control of TB in urban Nepal, the principles of which could be applied in other urban settings in the country. Lalitpur municipality, a medium-sized city in the Kathmandu valley with a population of about 200 000, was chosen by the NTP as an appropriate site for this initiative. The project aimed to develop, implement, and evaluate the public–private partnership.
