The mission of TB PEN is to develop and strengthen the capacity of state and local TB programs for monitoring and evaluating their programs and for using their findings in enhancing effectiveness of their prevention and control activities.

The goal of TB PEN is to build capacity for TB program evaluation activities in state and local TB programs and increase the number of programs that are evaluating their activities through the following means:

  1. Engaging TB control professionals in monitoring and evaluating TB control activities
  2. Providing expertise and technical assistance for conducting TB program evaluation
  3. Identifying and sharing effective program evaluation strategies

TB PEN membership is open to any federally funded TB agency and subrecipients who have an interest in TB program evaluation. No membership fees are charged and new members may join at any time by sending an e-mail to

TB PEN’s Steering Committee leads the development of programming for evaluation-focused sessions at the TB Education and Training Network (TB ETN) and Program Evaluation Network Conference held in Atlanta, Georgia, every other year. Past conference topics are available on the TB ETN conference website.
