Frequently-asked questions

How can I implement the recommendations of the Task Force in my country?

Frequently-asked questions

The first step is to perform a preliminary assessment of the TB situation in your country (in terms of the current burden of TB, MDR-TB and HIV) and the availability of complete and reliable TB data (including TB/HIV and MDR-TB data). The Task Force framework for systematic assessment of TB surveillance data can be used to do this. Depending on the results of the assessment, specific activities and studies that would help to improve the existing surveillance and monitoring and evaluation system can be identified. The Task Force can facilitate the provision of technical and financial support that is required for implementation of these activities and studies.
