Baseline assessment of community based TB services in 8 WHO ENGAGE-TB priority countries
Abstract: This document contains a series of desk reviews for the eight ENGAGE-TB priority countries supported by the Global Fund (DRC, Kenya, Indonesia, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan and Tanzania). The document provides a situation assessment and gap analysis about the state of community based TB activities in these countries. The focus on these eight countries was justified by the high prevalence of TB and the very high number of missed/unreported cases. To develop the profiles, Global Fund applications, national TB strategic plans and reports, programme review reports, relevant national guidelines and websites of the community stakeholders were examined.

Furthermore, to ensure that the country profiles present valid and up-to-date information, inputs from partners and the WHO consultation meeting on finding missing TB cases through integrated community based TB service delivery (Addis Ababa, 11-13 April 2018) were integrated in the document.
