The Philippine Department of Health (DOH) requested immediate technical assistance from MSH/SPS to facilitate the transition of programmatic management for drug-resistant tuberculosis (PMDT) responsibilities from the Tropical Disease Foundation (TDF) to the DOH. In FY09, SPS initiated work with stakeholders within the DOH, National TB Reference Laboratory (NTRL), the World Health Organization's Western Pacific Regional Office (WHO/WPRO) and USAID/Philippines to expedite the transfer. SPS developed a set of interventions and capacity-building measures in the areas of management of TB-related medicines and supplies, diagnostic laboratory system strengthening, and management information systems (MIS) for the NTP.
