Mapping and reviewing roles and responsibilities of the main stakeholders of the National Tuberculosis Programme in Albania (2018)



The National Tuberculosis Programme (NTP) of Albania recently received an HIV/TB grant from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; the Albanian Ministry of Health and Social Protection (MoHSP) is the principal recipient of the grant. The MoHSP has an agreement with the WHO Regional Office for Europe to provide technical assistance in implementing the programme supported by the Global Fund grant. The assessment contained in this report, made during a mission to Tirana from 14 to 18 May 2018, forms part of that assistance; its objectives are to map and review the roles and responsibilities of the main NTP stakeholders and to make recommendations on what the future governance of the programme should be.
