Overview

The TB Supervision Performance Assessment and Recognition Strategy (TB SPARS) is a TB performance improvement approach that looks at educational, managerial, recognition and regulatory strategies to ensure comprehensive TB management and care at health facility level.

This approach was proposed to address TB care and performance problems like weak supply chain overstock and understock, unstructured supervision by the district TB and Leprosy Supervisors (DTLS), inadequate recording and reporting, analysis, and use of data at source.

This course targets all the five TB performance components: TB case management, laboratory procedure, TB infection control, logistics management, reporting and information systems.
