Abstract: The Evidence-based Participatory Quality Improvement (EPQI) methodology has been adapted to TB and is an innovative way to obtain better results, with the commitment of those who are directly responsible for patient care. This methodology for health care solutions features four integral components: a) customer-oriented quality evidence, b) process improvement, c) health system approach and d) participatory improvement. The crucial steps toward achieving and sustaining improvement in TB diagnostics and care are described in this document.
