    Therefore , one potential strategy for improving access to good quality care is to

    ensure that all relevant private providers become formally involved in national TB

    control program by providing TB diagnosis and treatment free of charge or at

    highly subsidized rates.

    Several initiatives in Myanmar to involve private providers-Among them , PSI

    (Population Services International (PSI ) ,under the brand Sun Quality Health is

    one of the initiatives by coordination with National Tuberculosis Program (NTP).

    TB control efforts are conducted in social franchising scheme with

    two poverty specific objectives

    (1)to equitably reach the poor and vulnerable with quality treatment

    Financial and social protection

    Highly subsidized TB care delivered through a social franchise scheme in the private sector

    in Myanmar help the poor reduce the heavy burden of costs of care for poor patients through

    providing drugs and diagnostics services free of charge

    Patients who turned directly to SQH GP avoid longer delay to treatment and so, they had

    significantly lower cost burden (15 % ) than those who had sought care at other providers

    first (30 % ).SQH franchises protect the patients from heavy additional financial burden.

    Comments on SQH Franchising scheme

    Through the social franchise scheme, poor people benefits quality services

    and equitable access likewise the patients of higher socio economic groups.

    Therefore , this scheme could perform well equity and inclusiveness of poor people .

    Overall, the social franchising approach conducted in Yangon is successful to some

    extent with the achievements of reaching the poor , equity in access and good

    treatment success rate . Therefore , public private partnership in the form of social

    franchising meets the health care needs of the people especially poor people in the

    study areas .(consensus oriented )

    (c ) Suggestion for the improving of Social franchising in TB control

    of Myanmar

    Social franchising scheme is very beneficial for TB patients because it supports the drugs in

    free charge ,

    Laboratory charge in free of charge ,and only low consultation fees has to pay the general

    practioners .

    Franchising of TB services also need to be publicly funded to be selfsustained if it is

    aimed to reach the poor staying throughout the country and to be financially protected

    because ,now these franchising scheme is mainly supported by the international funds and

    therefore ,there is limitation in funding amounts and funding preiod is also limited.

    Branding and marketing about TB disease and treatment need to be expanded until it make

    aware the whole population because only one patient of the study area knows through the

    communication media (TV spot )that treatment is freely available. 12

    More private providers need to be involved to serve the whole population of

    contryso that it can covers the whole population of the country because the number

    of the private clinics offering sun franchising scheme is few compared with the all

    the general practitioner clinics all over the country

    It should be considered that whether Franchising scheme will give equal access to

    poor in every parts of Myanmar because there are fixed limitations of number of

    patients for PSI trained GPs and the population of the areas is not the same from

    one place to another.

    It also need to consider about the sustainability of the social franchising clinics

    because general practioners who participated in the social franchising scheme getonly consultation fees from the patients and it is very few in agreement form with

    PSI (just 300 kyats (10 $) for one time of consultation .Therefore , there is no

    incentive for the general practioners to pursue them in long term participating in

    this scheme. 13
