The National Strategic Plan (NSP) for Tuberculosis in India (2017-2025) has placed emphasis on both the need for decentralized sample collection and quality care and monitoring for TB as part of one of its four strategic pillars of Detect-Treat-Prevent-Build. The THALI Project of the Karnataka Health Promotion Trust (KHPT) has developed 2 innovations - the Specimen Collection and Transportation System (SCT) and the TB Careline - which have been exemplary additions to the TB care continuum.

These briefs can assist other implementers and health program designers to pilot and scale similar programs.
