SPHR IS committed to the promotion of equity and  Policies that are pro-poor, in its infectious diseases prevention and control activities. Our work are based on the recognition of poverty as a major barrier to health and health care. In infectious disease such TB and HIV, the links between poverty and disease burden have been known for many years. The integration of pro-poor measures in TB and HIV control programmes has been recognized and   guidances have been offered for national TB control programmes on the practical issues involved and options for action. The following six principal steps are recommended and SPHR is committed to working towards these principles. (1) Who are the poor and vulnerable populations? (2) What are the main barriers they face in accessing services that provide TB and HIV diagnosis and treatment? (3) What steps can be taken to overcome these barriers? (4) Which situations and groups require special consideration? (5) What resources can be mobilized to strengthen TB and HIV control for the poor and vulnerable groups? (6) How can the impact of pro-poor measures be assessed?
