The diversity of health care providers and their capacities to contribute to TB care and control vary greatly across and within countries. WHO guidelines to help implement PPM for engaging diverse care providers provide only broad principles of engagement of individual and institutional care providers within and outside the public sector. There has been a felt-need and demand for more specific guidance to NTPs on working with diverse care providers based on country experiences. This toolkit attempts to address this need.

The toolkit will help NTPs engage non-NTP care providers to deliver services in line with national guidelines based on International Standards for Tuberculosis Care.
