Mott MacDonald in partnership with KIT will be hosting a workshop entitled ‘Monitoring and evaluation in active case finding: the TB REACH approach’ at the 46th Union World Conference on Lung Health on Thursday 3 December 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa.
The conference theme is “A New Agenda: Lung Health Beyond 2015” which reflects the changing landscape of global public health and new era of action that clinicians, public health workers, health programme managers, researchers and advocates working to end suffering caused by lung disease will be embarking on together over the coming years. In particular, the conference will address how the new development agenda guided by the Sustainable Development Goals will influence the inter-related fights against tuberculosis, HIV, lung disease and non-communicable diseases and identify solutions for achieving success in the post-2015 era of global health and development.
Mott MacDonald and KIT are acting as the independent Monitoring and Evaluation Agency for TBREACH, a funding mechanism which aims to increase early TB case detection in poor and vulnerable populations and ensure timely and complete treatment while maintaining high TB cure rates. The workshop will explore the challenges around the monitoring and evaluation of TB public health interventions, with a particular focus on the concept of additionality as a measure of impact.
Mott MacDonald’s health specialists work locally in countries and regions around the world to form effective partnerships with donors, beneficiaries, civil society and other stakeholders to strengthen health and social care systems and transform communities. Our health services include programme design and management, policy and technical advice, research and monitoring and evaluation.
