Success Story: Tuberculosis Monitoring and Evaluation Trainings in Democratic Republic of Congo
Abstract: Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has made measurable progress in recent years following improved leadership, coordination, and investments in priority health issues by the government of DRC and international partners.

In 2021, the USAID-funded Tuberculosis Data, Impact Assessment and Communications Hub (TB DIAH) project began contributing to DRC’s ongoing efforts to strengthen its national TB program (NTP). The project worked with the USAID/DRC Mission and DRC’s NTP, the Programme National de Lutte contre la Tuberculose (PNLT), to conduct a gap analysis of the TB system. This analysis found that data quality, timeliness, and inconsistency or inaccuracy were among the major challenges facing the PNLT. These issues negatively impacted efficient resource use and program planning, resulting in insufficient or inappropriate service offerings and a lack of clarity on the impact of programming. Additionally, the team found significant room for technical growth in TB monitoring and evaluation (M&E).
