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 on 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.
