Project Description

Overview

In 2018, the USAID TB CARE II project held a two-day Global Consultation and Support for Infection, Prevention, and Control (IPC) Implementation workshop. Meeting in The Philippines, the TB CARE II team facilitated collaborative discussions around the operationalization of the best practices in IPC and how to best advance these practices globally. Focusing on the ten National Action Plan countries, the workshop presented a landscape analysis of IPC practices, tools, and documents at global and national levels. Participants discussed country priorities and how those align with universal IPC priority interventions for combatting MDR-TB. In collaboration with TB CARE II team members and USAID, participants worked towards developing country-level action plans and indicators for the measurement of progress toward NAP milestones 2.2.1 and 2.2.3.
