Updated regional strategic plan for TB care and control 2012-2015
AbstractThis update of the Regional Strategic Plan for TB care and control 2006-2015 describes the future directions and focus of work for TB control in the WHO South-East Asia Region. The targets, strategies and interventions in this document are consistent with the Stop TB Strategy and the Global Plan to Stop TB 2011-2015, but focus on priorities most relevant to the Region. A range of interventions is proposed. These interventions are aimed at accelerating progress in the context of evolving challenges, and the requirements of national TB control programmes in effectively meeting challenges. Developing these further will require flexibility and adaptation to suit the varying country contexts, the TB burden and the specific situations in Member countries of the Region. This document is intended for policy-makers, national programme managers and their staff, members of technical advisory groups, interagency coordinating committees or similar bodies, and all supporting partners .
