Every year, health systems miss millions of people with TB because of barriers to health services, human rights violations, stigma, and a lack of access to support services. The feedback from people affected by TB on these barriers is not systematically collected and used to respond to their specific needs and priorities. In return, community-led monitoring for accountability empowers and engages people affected by TB to know their rights and to report the barriers that prevent them from being diagnosed, treated, and cared for. This information is then used by communities and national TB Programs to address these gaps and challenges and to reach those who have been left behind.
OneImpact is the Stop TB Partnership innovative solution that facilitates community-led monitoring for accountability. Powered by Dure Technologies, it is made up of three tools that work together to provide a comprehensive community engagement, community empowerment and community-led monitoring for a better TB response at country level. Through the Challenge Facility for Civil Society, the Stop TB Partnership is providing grants and technical support to adapt, test, integrate and scale-up community-led monitoring innovations in countries, transforming national TB responses to be people-centered, rights-based, gender transformative and community-led.
GUIDE TO SUPPORT COMMUNITY-LED MONITORING (CLM) DATA USE IN DECISION-MAKING
Developed with International Treatment Preparedness Coalition, this guide supports the use of data generated by community-led monitoring (CLM) for decision-making and action to improve services, programs, and policies.
It focuses primarily on the use of CLM data about services and programs related to HIV, tuberculosis (TB), and malaria.
Much of the content is also applicable to the use of CLM data related to other health priorities, human rights and gender equality, and other social, economic, and development issues.
