Tuberculosis assessment mission to Armenia
In June 2004, the Ministry of Health requested the assistance of the World Health Organization, Regional Office for Europe, in approaching the Green Light Committee of the Working Group on DOTS-Plus for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. In October 2004, the Ministry of Health requested further assistance to develop a project proposal for tuberculosis control, to be submitted to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. International partners agreed to organize a joint mission to assess DOTS implementation in the country, including the drug supply component, so as to identify specific needs for implementing interventions addressing the problem of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis and to advise on the proposal to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The tuberculosis assessment mission took place from 7 to 12 February 2005.
