Technical Approaches to TB: Challenge TB, SIAPS & Track TB

Report

Using a people-centered approach, MSH works with local partners to develop health systems solutions that meet the needs of communities affected by TB. Strengthening national, regional, district, and local health managers and their institutions to provide quality health services is a core strategy to support health systems resilience and sustainability.

MSH has developed materials highlighting our technical approaches, results, and lessons from across our TB projects with multiple partners. These technical documents have been collected in this compendium to share our experiences and insights with other partners and implementers to continue the fight toward ending the TB epidemic.

These materials showcase MSH’s technical approaches, implementation strategies, results, and lessons from Challenge TB, SIAPS, and TRACK TB. Topics include:

  • Local leadership, management, and governance capacity

  • Contact screenings

  • MDR- TB and DR- TB

  • Community engagement

  • Urban DOTS and scale up

  • Treatment adherence

  • Service integration, including HIV and TB integration

  • Case finding interventions (e.g., FAST)

  • GeneXpert implementation

  • Utilization of health technologies

  • Vulnerable and displaced populations

  • Specimen transport

  • TB drug supply

We hope that by sharing these materials, partners, national governments, and other stakeholders can build on our results, achievements, and lessons to end the TB epidemic.
