Increasing demand for TB services

SHOPS Plus is developing a targeted social behavior change strategy that will raise community awareness and encourage care-seeking behavior for tuberculosis. The strategy will address societal barriers such as stigma and individual care-seeking behaviors such as openness to seeking diagnosis, follow-through with referrals, and adherence to treatment. The project is working on changing the behavior of private providers by promoting the adoption of standards for care that will enhance the patient experience and encourage more people with presumed tuberculosis to seek services at networked private facilities. The project will draw on elements of more emergent approaches such as human-centered design, which identifies the behavioral bottlenecks that impede behavior change.
