Summary: 

India accounts for approximately one-quarter of the estimated global burden of TB and MDR-TB.[4] Achieving the 2015 WHO End TB Strategy[5] and the latest Government of India target of TB elimination by 2025[6] will require substantial efforts and funding to continue to improve TB care in India. The present research identifies major gaps in both the measurement and implementation of India's public sector TB programme with implications to inform the programme's activities and to guide future research.
