Treat TB infection and prevent TB

KNCV, along with national and multilateral partners, is committed to delivering the necessary interventions to treat TB infection and prevent TB. This is achieved through scaling up access to the necessary medicines and technologies so that people who are at risk can benefit from them, and protect themselves and their families. Through the IMPAACT4TB project, KNCV is working in Ethiopia, Indonesia, Malawi and Tanzania to support national efforts in this area. In collaboration with the WHO, KNCV is addressing the knowledge and capacity gap by developing easy to access tools that will assist health providers and decision makers at every level to meet TB prevention goals and commitments for their communities.

KNCV has been fighting TB since its establishment in 1903. Over the past 120 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB prevention and care, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
