TB REACH Philippines

The TB REACH projects on treatment adherence, funded by Stop TB Partnership aims to:
(ii) Implement 99DOTS adherence technology through National TB Program (NTP) accredited service delivery and supply chains, and
(ii) Assess practicalities, scalability and impact on treatment outcomes of monitored self-administration and dose history informed differentiated care.

In 2019 we had the following successes:

  • The treatment success rate was 79% (213/269) with 82 patients still undergoing treatment
  • We secured buy-in of NTP (national, regional, local) and other stakeholders (e.g. WHO, private and public sectors)
  • DAT is now included in the revised NTP Manual of Procedures
  • We identified and proposed modifications needed in 99DOTS application and dashboard for enhancements in ASCENT
  • Participatory localization/customization of DAT and establishment of differentiation pathway of care – by regional and local stakeholders.

KNCV has been fighting TB since its establishment in 1903. Over the past 117 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB control, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
