National Health Policies and Strategies for Tuberculosis Control in the Kingdom of Cambodia 2011-2015

This document of the National Health Policies and Strategies for Tuberculosis (TB) Control 2011-2015 was developed in accordance with the wider overall National Health Strategic Plan 2008-2015 as well as the Global Stop TB Strategies and Plan 2006-2015. It is the third paper of its kind formulated by the National Center for Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control (CENAT) in close consultation with its partners.
This third policy and strategy paper gives priorities and directions for TB control in the Kingdom of Cambodia from 2011 to 2015.Priorities encompass quality services, involvement of community and TB patients, TB/HIV, Public Private Mix for DOTS, multi-Drug resistant TB, Childhood TB, information and research, partnership and advocacy as well as human resource development.
I believe that this document is the basis for the NTP for the development of its third five-year strategic plan for the purpose of achieving the targets of the NTP, which contribute to the attainment of the goals and objectives of the overall National Health Strategic Plan, which contribute to attaining MDG targets by 2015.
In addition, I believe that this policy and strategy paper is also of great importance for partners concerned including health officials, donor and technical agencies to understand, participate and support the successful implementation of these policies and strategies.
