KNCV has been active in the fight against tuberculosis for more than 110 years. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the disease from the world.
We firmly believe that the only way to achieve this goal is to embed TB control into national health programs and involving all relevant parties. That is why we invest in engaging the private sector and civil society organizations and empower patients to help themselves and others. That is also why ensuring country ownership and transferring knowledge on every mission are key components of our approach.
As an international renowned team of TB experts, KNCV also plays a pivotal and influential role in international TB policy development. We identify barriers and opportunities for TB control, addressing these with country-specific operational research projects and related guideline development. As such, we fight TB through the whole cycle of program design, implementation, evaluation and policy development.
