Capitalizing on facilitators and addressing barriers when implementing active tuberculosis case-finding in six districts of Ho Chi Minh City
In this publication, we provide insights into facilitators, barriers and “how-to” strategies for active case-finding (ACF) implementation in Vietnam, applying an implementation science framework. We captured perceptions from key stakeholders involved in ACF implementation, including patients, employees, volunteers and leaders.
Employees and volunteers experienced similar facilitators and barriers for ACF. A single facilitator was mentioned by only volunteers: the use of one’s network to facilitate ACF. Despite a conducive social and organizational context for ACF implementation, employees and volunteers still make or break the process because addressing facilitators and barriers for implementation depends on their individual skills and efforts.
