A new guidance is being released by the World Health Organization (WHO) to start the support of national strategic planning for tuberculosis (TB) response. This guidance will take a new focus mainly centered on the common people to develop the national strategic plan for TB. It has highlighted the importance of government ownership and stewardship, will ensure alignment with national strategy for health and also other programs. Moreover, it is also expected to emphasize multi stakeholder and multi-sectoral engagement as one of the key steps for multisectoral accountability for TB.
This guidance was first released in 2015 and is now being updated to develop and upgrade a national strategic plan to prevent, care and control TB and people who are infected by it.
The 'Guidance for national strategic planning for tuberculosis' was developed to better align with global commitments and latest developments in TB and in public health and builds on lessons learned from using the 2015 toolkit. This document will be complemented by the Guidance for conducting reviews of TB programs, that will be published by the end of this year.
The main intention of the guidance is to use them in the developing standalone strategic plans for TB or to start TB interventions as part of the national health sector or multi-disease plan.
