The TB Data, Impact Assessment and Communications Hub (TB DIAH) project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is associated with USAID’s Global Accelerator to End Tuberculosis (TB). The Accelerator is USAID’s new business model to focus on performance-based measures for combating TB.
A tenet of this approach is to reinforce USAID’s Journey to Self-Reliance. For TB, this means we will work to strengthen the capacity of national TB programs to reach every person with TB, including vulnerable groups; cure those who need treatment; and prevent the spread of new infections. A second tenet is to foster country commitment to policies and action for inclusive and accountable governance of TB programs with strong information systems, infrastructure and financial support, and participation of all of civil society.
TB DIAH aims to ensure optimal demand for and analysis of TB data and the appropriate use of such information to measure performance and to inform national TB programs and USAID interventions and policies. This website and data hub contain information, guidance, and tools for data users to achieve those ends.
