The unified clinical protocol of primary, secondary (specialized) and tertiary (highly specialized) medical care “Tuberculosis” provides the possibility to hand over the drugs to a patient for a term of up to 10 days in case of very positive attitude to treatment (page 17). Handing over drugs to a patient contradicts the definition of DOT services according to WHO (WHO: Implementing WHO Stop TB Strategy: a handbook for national tuberculosis control programmes. 2008 (page 32). Within the framework of the Global Fund grant, in 2011 the project was launched on social support to TB patients with a risk of treatment interruption (10% of general number of TB patients of category 1-3). The project is being implemented by the Ukrainian Red Cross Society.
