FIND India is implementing a Global Fund-supported project titled Joint Effort for Elimination of Tuberculosis (JEET), with an aim to partner with the private sector in various States of India to increase notifications, microbiological confirmation of TB patients, and facilitate early treatment initiation and adherence support systems for improved treatment completion rates with mechanisms to reduce the high costs to TB patients. JEET activities take a multi-pronged approach to engage with the private sector, following the National Strategic Plan mantra to “go where the patients go”. The project therefore proposes to work closely with the patient at all the touchpoints. These include chemists, pharmacies, clinics, providers, hospitals, laboratories, and Revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP). Additionally, FIND has been supporting the RNTCP in its Endeavour to modernize its diagnostic network through the introduction of genome sequencing technologies, development of a Lab Information Management System (LIMS) and other such activities. FIND would consider a candidate with experience in supporting monitoring & evaluation activities in health/development projects or equivalent.
