National Strategic Plan for Tuberculosis Control in Georgia 2016-2020
Tuberculosis (TB) remains an important public health problem in Georgia. Despite significant progress in the implementation of TB control interventions during the last decade, the country faces a number of important challenges that require further intensified and streamlined efforts to effectively control the epidemic by securing universal access to prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all forms of the disease, and ensuring effective integration and management of TB control interventions within the overall health system framework.
Overview and Objectives
The Government of Georgia is committed to increasingly allocate financial and other resources for effective TB control. This National Strategic Plan (NSP) aims to further align the national TB response with the latest international evidence, strategic policies and programmatic guidance. The NSP covers a five-year period, 2016-2020.
