      By using the number of KHDSS-resident adult cases reported to the National Tuberculosis Programme during the study period and the mean number of close contacts.   Direct observation of drug taking by a health worker is national policy for TB control in China. In the study area described, less than 5% of patients were directly observed, and health workers and patients did not consider the policy feasible or by:

      It is the responsibility of the National Malaria Control Program and partners to source for and distribute LLINs. During this strategic plan implementation, the Government will support the procurement of LLINs, distribution of the LLINs through mass campaigns and routine distribution through ANC, EPI, schools, private providers and commercial. 4. Discussion. Tuberculosis (TB) especially affects the economically most productive age group. The Bangladesh national tuberculosis program has reported that among TB cases three fourth belonged to age group 15–45 years [].In the current study, the mean age of the patients was ± years ranging from 15 to 86 years and female patients were younger than the male patients ().Cited by:

Dr Haileyesus Getahun (Switzerland) of the WHO Stop TB Department for his contributions to the development of evidence-based TB and HIV policy and practice. Malaria is a difficult disease to control largely due to the highly adaptable nature of the vector and parasites involved. While effective tools have been and will continue to be developed to combat malaria, inevitably, over time the parasites and mosquitoes will evolve means to circumvent those tools if used in isolation or used ineffectively.
