In 2010, the Stop TB Partnership, the World Health Organization Stop TB Department and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria jointly organized an expert meeting and workshop on operational research, followed by international consultations. The goal was to identify priority areas in which knowledge gaps hamper optimal implementation of TB control activities. The outcome of these activities formed the basis of this publication. This book is very timely for building the evidence base for effective implementation of TB programmes. It provides a clear road map of priorities in operational research to help countries improve implementation of TB control activities in critical areas.The priority operational research questions outlined in this report are also aligned with the Stop TB Partnership's Global Plan to Stop TB 2011-2015.
