Country Profiles: Pakistan

To date, Pakistan has been losing the war against tuberculosis. Over half the country has little or no access to health care. Approximately 25 percent of new TB cases are ever diagnosed, and only a fraction of doctors know how to prescribe effective treatment. Drug-resistant strains are likely increasing at an alarming rate.

A Country Under Attack


In this poor and crowded country of 130 million people, some 1.5 million suffer from TB, and more than 210,000 new cases occur each year. In fact, only one in four or five new cases is ever diagnosed. The irony is that efficient diagnosis would in most cases serve only to identify a disease that would not be treated effectively or cured in any event.

Last year, the TB Association of Karachi conducted a study to find out how much local doctors knew about effective treatment of tuberculosis. The Association asked 100 doctors to write a prescription for a TB patient whose case details and body weight were given. Only one physician in seven was able to prescribe effective treatment.

The Association asked 100 doctors to write a prescription for a TB patient whose case details and body weight were given. Only one physician in seven was able to prescribe effective treatment.
A 5-year development plan describes what needs to be done to achieve these results. The laboratory system will be strengthened to create a network of simple microscopy units, each responsible for no more than 100,000 people. All treatment centres will have a copy of the "Guidelines for TB Control in Pakistan" and reliable, high quality drug supplies. These centres will also use the special recording and reporting forms which allow health staff and government supervisors to manage the performance of each health district and accurately monitor progress toward cure of all infectious patients. Staff will receive regular training in the DOTS strategy.

Where Will the Money Come From?


At present, the biggest obstacle to these ambitious plans is lack of money. There has never been a separate budget for TB control in Pakistan, and it is not clear where financial support to enable the primary health programme to adopt the DOTS strategy will come from. Already some DOTS projects – notably one among Afghan refugees in Baluchistan – have experienced financial difficulties as foreign aid funding agreements have expired.

The DOTS strategy is inexpensive to employ, it makes excellent use of the existing health care infrastructure and staff and it is ranked by the World Bank as one of the most cost-effective of all health interventions, costing only US $1-5 for each year of healthy life saved.

DOTS puts the tax-based savings of national economies to benefit an entire society, providing real value for money. But DOTS is not free. It must be funded dependably, or TB control efforts will predictably slide back toward today's low cure rates, low case finding rates and continued epidemic spread of the disease. The lives of many in Pakistan will hinge on the government's success in financing its DOTS strategy.

210,700 new TB cases annually

Assessment - Pakistan

Last year, the TB Association of Karachi conducted a study to find out how much local doctors knew about effective treatment of tuberculosis. Only one physician in seven was able to prescribe effective treatment.
