- Develop and publish a clear plan outlining how the govern- ment will deliver its share of the global targets agreed to in the Political Declaration from the United Nations High Level Meeting on TB and establish a cross-governmental working group to monitor and evaluate progress made against those targets.
- Scale up access to TB services for all those seeking them, optimizing engagement of private sector providers and guaranteeing universal access to drug susceptibility testing and second line TB drugs.
- Prioritize private provider engagement by building partner- ships that incentivize improved quality of TB care and lead to improved case detection rates.
- Scale up health insurance to facilitate the provision of universal TB care and eliminate catastrophic costs for people with TB.
- Commit to ensuring the national TB program is fully funded by increasing domestic expenditures on health and increasing investment in TB R&D efforts in India and across the region.
- India can increase domestic expenditure on TB by 400% over the next 5 years by increasing the distribution of public resources to health, pooling financing, and allocating tax revenues to health.
