GUIDING AND MEASURING IMPACT OF TB CONTROL IN THE EU/EEA 



Framework action plan to
fight tuberculosis in the EU


Progressing towards TB elimination
 

 

The Action Plan defines four principles that are key to securing TB prevention and control in the EU/EEA. Cross-cutting these four principles are eight strategic areas aimed at guiding the ECDC as well as Member States in TB control priorities. Core indicators in the follow up monitoring framework are directly linked to the eight areas. 

  
 1. TB control commitment awareness, and capacity of health systems
 2. Surveillance  
 3. Laboratory services
 4. Prompt and quality TB care for all    
 5. MDR- and XDR TB  
 6. TB/HIV co-infection
 7. New tools for TB control  
 8. Build partnership and collaboration with countries
