Ninth Meeting of the Subgroup on Public-Private Mix for TB Care and Control

The ninth meeting of the Subgroup on Public-Private Mix for TB care and control (PPM Subgroup) was held in Bangkok, Thailand from 28 - 30 August 2013. The meeting was organized in the context of the development of the post-2015 TB strategy. It overviewed global progress in PPM to-date, discussed ways to accelerate PPM scale up and mainstreaming within the post-2015 TB strategy.

With a view of drawing attention to the possibility of substantially enhancing TB case notifications while also improving TB management among people with TB presenting to large hospitals, a workshop on the unfinished business of effective engagement of large hospitals in TB care and control was organised in conjunction with the Subgroup meeting. The evidence generated from documented field projects was presented and discussed, and field visits were undertaken for participants to examine first-hand some working examples of effective hospital engagement in TB care and control in Bangkok.
