9th Meeting of European Technical Advisory Group on Tuberculosis Control (TAG-TB)

2526 November 2014, Copenhagen, Denmark

The overall objective of TAG-TB is to provide advice to WHO/Europe on strategic directions and specific technical areas related to TB and drug-resistant TB prevention, control and care.

The key question is how to adapt the Post-2015 Global TB Strategy to the European setting. A steering group including country representatives and technical agencies has been established to prepare a Regional TB Strategic Plan in line with the Global Strategy. The new Regional Plan is to be based on a careful and objective assessment of the achievements and challenges encountered in implementation of the Consolidated Action Plan to Prevent and Combat Multidrug- and Extensively Drug-resistant TB 20112015.
