Symposium: The people-centred framework for strategic planning

KNCV kicks of the Union Conference on Wednesday the 21st of October with a number of E-poster presentations, followed by this symposium at 12.30 (CET):  ‘The people-centred framework for national and subnational TB planning and programming: early adopters share lessons learned and experiences’, moderated by KNCV’s Kathy Fiekert and KNCV’s Emmy van der Grinten as one of the speakers.

The People-Centered Framework for TB programming: Development of Optimized National Strategic Plans was jointly developed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (the foundation), The Royal Tropical Institute Netherlands (KIT), the World Health Organization (WHO), Linksbridge SPC, TB MAC and refined by KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation (KNCV) to provide countries with the necessary tools and approaches to optimize their National Strategic Plans (NSP) in line with the End TB Strategy, SDGs and country commitments.

KNCV has implemented the People-Centered Framework (PCF) in Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Uganda, Ghana, Namibia and Tanzania. You can read all about the philosophy, strategic focus and delivery of people-centered TB services that the PCF entails on the People-Centered Framework project page.

Union World Conference Symposium

Wednesday 21st of October 2020
12:30 – 13:50: The people-centred framework for national and subnational TB planning and programming: early adopters share lessons learned and experiences
Online/virtual, Channel 4

In the era of the End TB Strategy, the Sustainable Development Goals, and recent COVID-19 pandemic, national tuberculosis (TB) programmes are under increasing pressure to balance demands for ambitious programme targets with limited/diminishing resources. The resulting requirement for prioritisation and ‘hard choices’ threatens to curtail effective TB programming. Rwanda, Uganda and Ethiopia, early adopter countries, share their experiences applying the people-centred framework in their latest NSP development. The people-centred framework was designed to help countries to better streamline and utilise increasingly available evidence/data for decision making along the care continuum (including utilisation of mathematical impact and cost-effectiveness modelling), and facilitate evidence-based, optimised, people-centred responsive and resilient strategic planning and programming.
