Stop TB Partnership

The National Stop TB Partnership in Kenya

Stop TB Kenya: A pre-launch meeting was hosted by the Minister for Public Health & Sanitation to discuss the need for a partnership to support the NTP in August 2010. Stop TB Kenya was formed to respond to partners' interest in working together with the NTP to maximize efficiency and effectiveness through a streamlined partnership approach. On 18 October 2011 Stop TB Kenya had its first steering committee meeting with the Division of Leprosy, TB and Lung Disease (DLTLD) technical working group. The Kenya Stop TB Partnership's first meeting will prioritize the commemoration of World TB Day 2012 in order to ensure a successful communications campaign and will begin the partnership exploration phase of the partnering process. This new partnership has great prospects for the years to come.
