Analysis of the epidemiological impact of tuberculosis in Georgia (2016)



An excellent understanding of the level of, and trends in, disease burden and how these have been (and can be) influenced by the implementation of prevention and treatment interventions is of considerable importance to national health programmes and international donor agencies. It can help to ensure the appropriate allocation of funding and ultimately help to save more lives in the future.

This epidemiological and impact analysis was included as a systematic part of national health sector reviews and tuberculosis (TB) programme reviews. Such analyses are now required in the concept notes that form the basis for applications to the Global Fund in the new funding model introduced in 2013.

This report delivers TB epidemiological and impact analyses conducted as part of the national TB programme review of Georgia, as inputs to health sector reviews and for the epidemiological stage of the Global Fund’s new funding model.
