||Case-study of three voluntary organisations doing anti-tuberculosis
work in Gujarat.

The inadequate collaboration and co-ordination
between the voluntary and governmental institutions should be highly
detrimental to patients who after receiving some treatment soon
get lost to further treatment because they are not properly referred
to health centres near their homes and cannot continue their treatment
at voluntary institutions, either, for obvious reasons. The apparent
inability of a few voluntary organisations to adapt their activities
in line with the modern concepts of TB control may work to the disadvantage
of the TB programme of Gujarat state.
