KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation (KNCV) believes in a programmatic and patient/family approach and in diagnosis and treatment for all. To do so, KNCV experts support colleagues in more than 25 countries worldwide to strengthen national TB programs and embed innovations. We work through national and local health systems ensuring that interventions are aligned with a country’s TB National Strategic Plan and fully integrated into a country’s broader healthcare delivery system. Collaboration with other sectors and social services are essential to effectively engage communities and reach marginalized and vulnerable populations.
KNCV is a global expertise center for TB control and partners with local practitioners and research institutes to initiate and support operational and epidemiological research to build the evidence (hyperlink naar stukje bij who we are over evidence-based) base for optimal TB interventions. The resulting insights underpin KNCV’s work in domestic and international TB policy and guidelines development. KNCV offers end-to-end support for program design, introduction and implementation of new tools and interventions, evaluation and policy development.
