2.7.1 Developing a plan for monitoring and evaluation

Monitoring and evaluating systematic screening should be incorporated into the monitoring and evaluation programmes used in the national TB programme. The programme will determine the roles of the people involved in monitoring and its characteristics (e.g. frequency of monitoring, methods used, how the information collected will be fed back to adjust screening). Targets should be set for the expected caseload and yield, the NNS and costs in relation to benefits. Targets should be based on the estimated under-detection in different settings but should also account for programme realities. Screening interventions that are expected to require additional funding and resource mobilization should be appropriate to the need.
