This paper presents the findings of some of the
first studies on the private sector in TB control in India, undertaken
by the Foundation for Research in Community Health, in the rural
and urban parts of Maharashtra. Two studies examined the management
practices of private medical practitioners. One prospective study
documented the treatment behaviour of TB patients under care of
private medical practitioners and the third one evaluated two city-based
TB projects undertaken by groups of private medical practitioners.
