The World Health Organization (WHO) has published a new compendium of data and evidence-related tools for use in Tuberculous (TB) planning and programming. Over the past two decades, there has been a considerable increase in the number of aides to generate, analyse and use data and evidence, to support discussion and decision-making by National TB Programmes (NTPs) and their partners. The WHO reports that as more data are generated and data analysis tools evolve and increase in number, it can be challenging to understand how, why and when these tools should be implemented.
This compendium is designed to help NTPs make best use of the available tools for policy, planning and programmatic action, and summarises information about the key tools related to data and evidence available for use in TB planning and programming, and how they can be applied.
