Monitoring & Support
As part of its grant service, GDF sends annual monitoring missions to client countries to provide technical assistance to National TB Programmes, support implementation of the DOTS strategy and assess adherence to the terms and conditions of GDF support. These monitoring missions are conducted independently or in conjunction with Stop TB partner visits. The mission team is usually composed of a drug management and a TB program management expert.
For both grant and direct procurement services, GDF also provides technical assistance to countries' TB programmes through regular communication by GDF staff and through short term in country technical visits provided by GDF's technical partners.
