Activity-Based Costing (ABC) has been applied for more than 30 years to allocate costs and provide information for decision-making. This paper seeks to review previous literature in the health field that analysed this cost system and its new version, TDABC (Time-Driven Activity-Based Costing). Five hundred ninety articles published from 1989 to 2019 were retrieved from Scopus and Medlin...
Active case finding (ACF) is critical for the timely detection and treatment of diseases like tuberculosis (TB). ACF is crucial in India, where health-seeking behaviour across various populations is low and non-reporting is a barrier to breaking disease transmission cycles and eliminating the disease. As an integral part of India's national TB control programs, there is further scope for improvement in its design. This paper outlines a roadmap for ACF for TB in the country. It is based on curren...

We discuss how public trust and confidence can be rehabilitated through accountability, transparency, and proper communication from the...
