Stop TB Report on Tanzania DHIS2-ETL

2 March 2023

Tanzania uses the DHIS2 Tracker, called the electronic TB and Leprosy (ETL) platform, as a tool for TB notification, and all the data is captured in case-based record form. The system was developed and maintained with support from The Global Fund and operationalized and funded for M&E by USAID. The data for both DR and DS TB is entered into the system, and three tracker programs are used for TB reporting - TB register, MDR TB register, and Culture & DST register. The TB data from DHIS2 is available with other program indicators in the DHIS2 National Data Warehouse to enable comprehensive data review and analysis of TB data nationally, complementing the existing national HMIS data systems.
