The Global Fund has been the largest donor to Pakistan in bridging the gap for TB funding in the country. There are three Principal  
Recipients (PRs) for the implementation of the TB Control activities in Pakistan funded by the Global Fund. The public sector PR is National TB  
Control Program (NTP) and the private sector PRs are Mercy Corps and The Indus Hospital Network.  

At national level NTP provides overall leadership and technical guidance to all TB control initiatives in the country. NTP is supported by the  
Provincial TB Control Programs (PTPs) in each province. The PTPs supervise and monitor the implementation of TB control activities at the  
provincial level. At the district level, the activities are implemented under the supervision of District TB Coordinator (DTC), who is supported  
by the District Lab Supervisor (DLS).

Mercy Corps is a non-profit international non-governmental organization, which has been operational in Pakistan since 1986. It is improving  
livelihood, increasing access to health care and helping communities recover from emergencies. Mercy Corps has been the PR of The Global  
Fund for TB Control activities in the private sector since 2007. Mercy Corps is working in close coordination and collaboration with National  
and Provincial TB Control Programs, contributing to the overall national case notification of TB cases. Through its partners, Mercy Corps  
implemented the Public-Private Mix (PPM) project across the country by engaging private sector’s healthcare providers for the provision of  
quality TB diagnosis and treatment. Under the New Funding Request (NFR) grant of the Global Fund, Mercy Corps continues to implement  
PPM in 65 districts of Pakistan with six sub-recipients.   

The allocation of districts according to the SRs in four provinces and three regions is tabulated below:

Pakistan is the world's sixth most populous country with an estimated population of 193 million and is ranked fifth amongst 30 TB high-burden countries in the world with an estimated 518,000 new TB  
cases each year. The incidence rate is 268 cases per 100,000 population, prevalence rate is 342 cases per 100,000 population and overall TB mortality rate is 23 deaths per 100,000 population.  
Pakistan is also one of the top 10 highest multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB burden countries with an estimated 15,000 MDR TB cases among notified pulmonary TB cases.
The WHO targets for TB are 90% of the TB cases to be detected and 93% of the detected cases to complete their treatment successfully. In 2016, there were 366,061 all type TB cases notified in  
Pakistan, giving an estimated treatment coverage (notified/estimated incidence) of 70% with treatment success rate of 91%. However, there is still an estimated annual short fall around 145,000  
incident TB cases. This huge pool of undetected or “missing” TB cases is a cause of great concern for the national and provincial TB control programs and international partners. It is highly likely that  
these active, incident TB cases are neither properly diagnosed nor receive quality care. Furthermore, these cases will often face a long delay before they are eventually diagnosed.  
These missing cases form the basis of strategic priorities for Mercy Corps and the organization has been striving to detect these missing through active and passive case finding interventions coupled  
with enhance case finding approaches in 65 districts of Pakistan in the Global Fund’s New Funding Request (NFR) grant.

Implementation Strategy

The implementation strategy is based on finding the missing TB cases. The missing TB cases belong to the following three groups:

•   Diagnosed in the private sector but are not reported in the National TB Case Notification
•   Symptomatic but not detected as they are hard to reach
•   Silent not detectable by 2 week cough algorithm (30% of prevalent cases)

Mercy Corps will be contributing towards finding the missing cases by addressing the symptomatic as well as asymptomatic cases.
