Standards and Benchmarks for Tuberculosis Surveillance and Vital Registration Systems: Checklist and User Guide

Author:World Health Organization
Description:This resource was developed to assess a national surveillance system's ability to accurately measure TB cases and deaths and to identify gaps in national surveillance systems that must be addressed to improve TB surveillance. The results of national assessments can be used to identify which countries have surveillance systems that already provide an accurate measure of the number of TB cases and deaths that occur each year, and define the actions needed to strengthen surveillance in countries in which gaps are identified. Assessments can be timed to coincide with periodic reviews and monitoring and evaluation planning periods.
