Name National Strategic Plan for Tuberculosis 2016-2020

Tuberculosis is one of the major Public Health issues in Myanmar, and the country has been included in the list of 30 countries with the highest TB burden globally identi ed by the World Health Organization. To implement an e ective strategy to combat and control TB, the National Tuberculosis Programme (NTP) applied the 3 in 1 principle: one coordinating body (TB Technical Strategic Group under Myanmar Health Sector Coordinating Committee), one National Strategic Plan (Five-year TB NSP 2016-2020) and one National Monitoring and Evaluation System (National M&E Plan 2016-2020). Based on the results of the recently completed nationwide TB Prevalence Survey and the current national population census, the NTP has revised TB epidemiological data, impact targets, policies and control strategies and funding requirements to be better equipped to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
