Methods: A review of documents was done to evaluate the achievement of the specific targets of PDI. Results: Among the targets, the percentage of actively referring pharmacies and the number of referrals made throughout the program failed to meet the target. The remaining program targets such as the establishment of a referral system, training of pharmacy personnel, adoption of a TB DOTS curriculum in pharmacy schools, and presence of national legislation, policies, and guidelines relevant to PDI were satisfactorily met.
Conclusion: PDI had a good response at the start of its implementation, but several issues resulted in the inability to sustain the interventions and achieve set targets.
