The Practical Approach to Lung Health (PAL) is a patient-centered approach. It focuses on improving the quality of diagnosis and treatment of respiratory illnesses in Primary Healthcare (PHC) settings. This approach shifts the focus from "is it or is it not TB?" to "which respiratory condition is present?”
This report is an evaluation of PAL implementation in eight countries; it also provides clinical guidelines and ways to develop managerial support within the local health system to link tuberculosis control activities with proper case management of all common respiratory conditions. This report can provide pathways to strengthening PAL strategy and guidelines at the national level.
