3rd in-depth review mission for NTP November 2008
The last in-depth review of the Sudan National Tuberculosis Control Programme was carried out in 2004 by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) and the Norwegian Heart and Lung Patient Organisation (LHL). For the last four years the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), through its National Tuberculosis Programme (NTP) has made important progress in the fight against tuberculosis in the country. Regular evaluation is the keystone for the NTP progress. In accordance with WHO, the Union and LHL, a new in-depth review was therefore carried out November 10-24, 2008. The overall objective was to assess progress according to plans since the last review and assess strengths and weaknesses in the NTP to prepare for its development towards quality services and sustainability. The review was limited to the 15 states of North Sudan.
