PHTB Consult supports countries and organisations with the development of policy and strategy documents as well as technical guidelines.
Technical guidelines: In 2018, PHTB Consult assisted Lithuania in developing a guideline for integrated care for people with TB, HIV and social challenges. The year before PHTB Consult supported the guideline for the diagnosis and treatment of latent tuberculosis infection in people living with HIV in Latvia. PHTB developed the first version of the handbook for TB control in the Netherlands, and contributed to the MDR-TB guidelines in Mozambique.
National Strategies: We assisted three countries in the development of their national TB strategic plan (including the budget): Uganda, Lesotho and Mozambique. The development process included working closely together with (inter)national stakeholders and national TB programme staff in the countries.
Performance Framework: PHTB Consult supported the performance framework for the regional Global Fund grant on mining in Southern Africa. This assignment included setting targets for key indicators as well as working on the monitoring process.
