CGPH-Pakistan focuses on establishing sustainable, synergistic partnerships with national and local governments, academic and research institutions, civil society organizations & other implementing partners.


CGPH-Pakistan is leading the analysis of intervention outcome of Active Case Finding (ACF) Screening Program for targeting strategies. It is a pragmatic stepped wedge cluster randomized trial that will evaluate whether a targeted approach towards ACF, supported by artificial-intelligence software (MATCH-AI), can increase yields of TB cases detected. The study is being conducted on a national scale in Pakistan and is embedded within the routine operations of the implementing partners of the National TB Program. The study will provide empirical evidence for the potential benefit of targeting of ACF interventions in a real-world setting, within a high-burden TB country.
