IAA GCRF Funding 18-19 Impact Development project (£16,850 awarded)
TB is a leading cause of death worldwide and smoking tobacco worsens its outcomes. Our team developed and evaluated a behavioural support (BS) intervention to help TB patients quit smoking. Using a Centre for Future Health KIT grant, we are implementing it within public-sector TB clinics in Pakistan. Next, we plan to scale-up these activities in the private healthcare sector. We propose to engage with a private healthcare provider (Indus) to: (a) integrate BS in private-sector TB clinics; (b) understand the socio-political context for scale-up within the wider Indus Health Network; and (c) adapt BS for other respiratory conditions.
