The work of KNCV during the Challenge TB project in Botswana mainly focused on providing technical support in various technical areas of TB and TB/HIV control.

Our technical expertise has led to the development of a five year strategic plan aligned with the Global End TB Strategy. The plan was the result of an earlier external review, also led by KNCV on the integration of TB-HIV-hepatitis program.

Botswana will also be the first country ever to conduct a combined national TB and HIV survey and KNCV has been providing the necessary technical assistance to develop an integrated survey protocol. Implementation is set to begin in June 2018.



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.
