The national guidelines were developed and few pilot projects were also started. However, the program became dormant due to abolition of the Federal Directorate for Tuberculosis Control in 1996. Therefore the progress during the first three years (i.e. 1995 – 1998) remained slow, because of its vertical approach, lack of consensus between federal and provincial units, and non-availability of funds from regular health budget. In 1998 the roles and relationship between the federal and provincial tuberculosis control program were re-defined and agreed.
