This study estimated the supply-side costs of services of the Bangladesh NTP during the base year 2016 and target years 2017-22 using the one health tool (OHT). The study conducted consultative meetings with experts and key informants, field visits, and reviewed documents to collect TB interventions and costs related data. The study revealed that the costs per patient for a shorter regimen multi drug resistant TB (MDR) and pre-extensively drug resistant TB (Pre-XDR) treatment is substantially less under the new treatment regimen of 2019 compared to the previous regimen of 2016, which can be scaled up. The study also found a funding gap of US$ 235.2 million indicating requirement of additional investment for delivering TB services effectively up to 2022.
- To estimate the unit cost of TB services (prevention, diagnosis and treatment,) and cost per case by service delivery channel in the base year and target years.
- To estimate the total cost of drugs, supplies and labor consumed in TB service delivery during the base year 2016 and expected to be consumed in the target years 2017-22.
- To estimate the costs required to get the projected TB service impacts during the target years 2017-22
