AbstractThis short advocacy brochure has been prepared to provide in an illustrative manner, a brief overview of the situation and progress made in TB control until 2005 using the DOTS strategy. The booklet also outlines the key strategies and approaches proposed to be implemented under the Regional Strategic Plan for TB control in the SEA Region between 2006 and 2015. The major challenges and opportunities for TB control in the Region and examples of successful interventions that have been undertaken in countries are highlighted. The overall costs of implementing TB control interventions in the Region until 2010 and the support TB control programmes in the Region receive presently, are also covered.
