Introduction: Quality of TB laboratory services in both public and private health facilities is a mandatory component in detecting active pulmonary TB cases and treatment follow-up. Even though it is one of the key components of DOTs strategy, a very low TB detection rate (36%) in Ethiopia and 37.5 % in Amhara Region was observed. The quality of TB laboratory services was very low (6.8%) in Ethiopia.
