Job Description

Introduction

Background
Although significant progress has been made towards ending tuberculosis (TB) as a public health burden, TB is still one of the leading cause of mortality in the world.

Specifically, more than 1.8 million people die from TB every year and approximately one quarter of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-related deaths are due to TB.1 Despite intensified worldwide efforts to diagnose and successfully treat TB patients, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that almost 3 million cases are missed each year – not diagnosed, treated or reported to National TB Programs (NTP).

Additionally, the rapid emergence of multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB) has the potential of reversing the two decades of progress that has been made mitigating the impact of TB.

Prompt detection and appropriate treatment is a central strategy and approach to control TB, and is the centerpiece of most national TB program strategies in high burden countries.

Tuberculosis can successfully be treated and cured through effective interventions, including in resource-limited settings. NTPs are increasing their efforts to improve the quality of TB diagnosis, care and treatment services in addition to improving access to TB care.

Improving basic standards of TB care can attract more clients by ensuring the clients receive the care that they deserve. In addition, quality services help to improve adherence, diagnosis and treatment and reduce lost to follow-up rate ultimately contributing to reducing the burden of TB disease, including drug resistant TB (DR-TB).

An improved understanding
of what constitutes quality of care in TB programs would enhance the provision of integrated patient-centered TB care.
