KNCV’s overarching strategic direction focuses on assisting countries and national/local partners in accordance with their needs in the complementary areas of innovations and evidence generation, policy development and strategic planning, and supportive systems. Acknowledging the capacity which exists in many countries to lead and implement TB programs, KNCV increasingly supports introduction, in-country evidence generation and scale-up of innovations, like new approaches, tools and treatments, while strengthening surveillance for data-driven program management and strategic planning. KNCV areas of work include the whole specter of TB Elimination and the patient pathway, from prevention to diagnosis, treatment and care. In addition, KNCV collaborates with partner organizations like the TB Alliance and IAVI by providing complementary services, especially regarding introduction of innovations.


KNCV has over five decades of experience in technical assistance (TA) and project implementation in over 40 countries across four continents and understands the contexts and the complexities of different health systems. While being responsible to specific country TA requests, through its TA, KNCV’s work is guided by international standards and aims to contribute to achieving global objectives.

Drawing on lessons from its vast experience, KNCV adheres to the following best practices to ensure quality technical assistance and rapid capacity transfer.
