The TB Control programme of the Kingdom of Swaziland has been implementing a National TB Control Strategic Plan (TB NSP) covering the period 2010 - 2014. Before it elapsed and to inform the development of a successor plan, the government through the Ministry of Health requested WHO to lead a joint external review of the implementation plan and to assess its impacts on the TB situation in the country. The review was designed to identify successes and best practices to be enhanced and built upon, opportunities to be optimized, gaps to be embraced, and challenges to be addressed.
