File Type: PDF | File Size: 193.41 KB

The objective of this document is to provide a framework for URC projects involved in TB, TB/HIV and MDR TB to better plan, manage, and coordinate delivery of social support and  social protection services for TB patients. This guide includes lessons from existing TB social support programs, including those supported by URC. Building on these lessons, this guide seeks to articulate a minimum package of effective social support and social protection services, emanating from discussions around the purpose and need for different social support components, and potential partnerships with existing service providers.
