Posted on: May 27, 2019


We are delighted to announce that the IMPACT TB annual meeting for 2019 will take place in Kathmandu and hosted by BNMT-Nepal on 2nd & 3rd July. Consortium partners from the UK (LSTM), Vietnam (FIT), Sweden (KI) and the Netherlands (KNCV) will join BNMT to review progress since the last meeting in Ho Chi Minh City and outline priorities for the final 6 months of the programme. There will also be representatives from policy making bodies at all levels of government from within Nepal. We will also discuss plans for data analysis and project publications.

The meeting will be followed by a 2-day policy dialogue workshop hosted by Karolinska Institute (Sweden) on 4th & 5th July to review patient and health system costs through active tuberculosis case-finding (ACF). There will be representatives from the Nepal’s Ministry of Public Health and National TB Programme as well as numerous NGOs based in the country.
