TBTEAM (TB TEchnical Assistance Mechanism) TBTEAM, the Tuberculosis Technical Assistance Mechanism, with a secretariat housed in WHO, is the Global coordination mechanism for technical assistance for countries from among the global network of TB technical partners. It supports Global Fund grants by linking these partners to countries for proposal preparation, grant negotiation, implementation of grants, consolidation of plans across multiple grants, provision of technical assistance to address grant bottlenecks, and on- going grant monitoring.
TB planning and budgeting tool The tool is an Excel-based spreadsheet in which plans and budgets for all major components of the Stop TB Strategy can be developed. Accompanying documents and related links that will help users to understand and use the tool effectively are also provided on this site.
The tool uses explanatory text, PowerPoint presentations, exercises, examples and data templates. It was developed in 2004/2005 and widely used until 2007. Some of the materials presented in this virtual workshop make use of methods which are no longer recommended by WHO, such as surveys of the annual risk of infection to measure TB incidence.
