Task Order 15: Enhancing TB programs capacity for self-evaluation: testing new tools and developing an evaluation toolkit

Task Order 15 is a project to develop user-friendly tools that can be used to evaluate local and state TB programs. The goal of the project is for programs to obtain technical assistance in evaluation so that they are able to implement program evaluation.


American Lung Association of Metropolitan Chicago, Research Triangle Institute, and New York State Health Research Inc.

Study Objectives

  1. Engage and involve partners from state and local programs to develop and test the draft tools, and to improve the draft tools, based on the field tests to provide state and local TB control
  2. Provide TB programs with a flexible, useful toolkit to properly and efficiently conduct self-evaluations to ultimately improve performance.

Study Design

This project is designed develop and pilot test evaluation tools under programmatic and operational conditions to determine their suitability and utility. Local programs will implement the draft tools to conduct self-evaluations, and based on their experiences, the local programs will also evaluate the tools for utility, feasibility, and accuracy. They will also record what adaptations were necessary to make the tools more useful in the field. Tools and materials that emerge from the pilot tests will be disseminated to TB programs nationally to use as part of their routine evaluation activities.

Study Progress

Study completed.
