A path forward: Improving the quality of TB services and data
Satellite session (SS09) organized by USAID and MEASURE Evaluation
Time: 18:00–19:30 GMT   |   Location: Yangtze 1

The tuberculosis community is focused on achieving the End TB Strategy goals of reducing incidence by 80 percent within the next twelve years. Achievement of the End TB goals will depend on the quality of care provided by individual countries, as most patients have access to health facilities and are covered by national TB programs. This satellite session will illustrate where quality of care is often poor and the consequences this can have. The session’s objective is to indicate where improvements in policies and in implementation can be made at the national level.
