Center of Excellence
TB DIAH is working with the Republic of Georgia’s National Center for Disease Control and Public Health (NCDC) and National Center for Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases (NCTLD) to create an Eastern European and Eurasian (EEE) Center of Excellence (COE) in TB monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and surveillance. Georgia, an Eastern European country with strong TB M&E practices, was selected as the EEE COE host country. Other COE partners include Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia, and Azerbaijan.
The COE contributes to TB M&E research, dissemination, expertise building, and knowledge sharing across the EEE region. It will feature a virtual platform for sharing online trainings, webinars, and other resources to harness existing TB data and engage those in the COE network.
The COE is designed to improve Georgia’s TB data reporting, communication, and sharing for its own effective decision-making. TB DIAH is also supporting Georgia’s NCDC and NCTLD to document their experiences with identifying and addressing identified areas for improvement within their TB M&E systems as reference for other countries to learn from and build upon. Ultimately, the COE will serve as a regional model for best practices in TB M&E and surveillance.
Finally, the COE serves as a hub for TB DIAH support in the EEE region to ensure synergy, sustainability, and effective use of resources.
