Abstract: This project employed a multi-method design to generate a broad understanding of the TB/HIV mortality M&E challenges. Data from a survey of M&E officers in 19 countries as well as an analysis of 24,049 TB records from surveillance systems in five African countries were triangulated to determine the accessibility, quality and utilization of TB patient mortality data for monitoring and evaluation purposes.
