Final Report - EUMEDNETVSTB (Building a cooperative strategy between Europe and Mediterranean Countries for upgrading tuberculosis research and control)

Project ID: 245872
Funded under: FP7-REGPOT

Abstract

This is the final report of the EUMEDNETVSTB project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project aimed at strengthening and promoting tuberculosis research and surveillance in the Maghreb. Following a brief description on key results, it provides a concise overview of the key findings within the project. It places the results in the broad perspective of the complete project and includes the major insights that have been obtained, their relation to the main objective and the necessary actions to progress further towards their goal at the end of the project. Of note, EUMEDNETVSTB laid the foundation for a favourable TB research context in the Maghreb, which undoubtedly will benefit to TB diagnosis and surveillance. Through the organised symposia and meetings, and communication means, TB professionals, stakeholders, and the MPC community at large, were sensitised with TB issues and became aware of the new tools that might help to better control TB.
