Stop TB Partnership

Global DAT Taskforce

Since 2015, major efforts have been made to accelerate the uptake of digital adherence technologies (DATs) for people-centered tuberculosis (TB) treatment and care modalities.

To contribute to the further evaluation of DATs in line with the targets set forth in the Global Plan to End TB and the End TB Strategy, an optimal introduction and scale-up of DATs, and further innovation in DATs and supporting/enabling tools, processes and systems, a Global Task Force on Digital Adherence Technologies ("DAT Task Force") has been established for an initial period of two years (July 2020 - July 2022).

The coordinating body of this DAT Task Force will be the External Affairs and Strategic Initiatives (EASI) team at the Stop TB Partnership in Geneva, Switzerland.

The DAT Task Force will consist of a broad spectrum of country and global partners and stakeholders, including people affected by TB, country policymakers, academia/researchers, donors/funders, implementing/technical partners, information, and communication technology (ICT) experts.
