Other TitlesJakarta, Indonesia, 29-31 May 2012
AbstractAchieving TB control goals and objectives will require actions not only by and beyond TB control programs, but also by and beyond the health sector. To ensure active involvement of all stakeholders as well as other sectors beyond the TB control programs, strategic planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation becomes increasingly important. Countries in the Region are progressing well in implementation of national strategic plans. However, with the increased complexity of many stakeholders as well as to ensure universal access to quality TB prevention, care and control, additional efforts are needed. The general objective of the workshop was to strengthen country capacity to plan, implement and monitor technical assistance needs based on the revised or updated national strategic plan. The specific objectives were to update participants on latest developments in the Stop TB strategy and link to technical assistance, provide an overview of TBTEAM, and technical assistance planning, implementation and monitoring at country and regional level and review existing country and regional TBTEAM plans for technical assistance and develop/update country-specific and regional TBTEAM technical assistance.
