The community-based TB control program of BRAC, one of the world's largest NGOs has created access to lifesaving diagnostics and treatment for hundreds of thousands. For over 25 years, its army of health volunteers has brought services to the doorsteps of patients. From organizing mobile outreach to collect sputum samples for diagnosis to implementing a bonding system to ensure treatment compliance, BRAC's experience demonstrates how programmatic innovation and sound management systems can enable an organization to achieve some of the highest cure rates while operating at unprecedented scale. Making Tuberculosis History provides a complete account of this program: how it was conceived, piloted, refined, scaled, managed, and ultimately adapted for new contexts, including the rapidly growing urban areas of Bangladesh and remote mountainous regions of Afghanistan.
