Quality of Tuberculosis Services Assessment in the Philippines: Tools Abstract:

The Quality of Tuberculosis Services Assessment (QTSA) is conducted with the support of four tools: the Facility Audit, the Provider Interview, the Patient Interview, and the Register Review. MEASURE Evaluation—a project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)—developed these four tools with the assistance of colleagues at USAID. 

The tools exist in a generic format that is adaptable to any country wishing to conduct a QTSA. For instance, some countries may have different names for their health administrative units (e.g., district, province, ward, or woreda) or the name of their TB registers (e.g., TB patient logbook or TB confirmed cases register). They are customized to fit the country priorities and context in which they will be used. 

The generic QTSA tools are available at the following link: https://www.measureevaluation.org/resources/publications/tl-19-41/  

This document presents only the QTSA tools adapted for use in the Philippines. It provides detailed information about the structure and content of the tools. More information on the QTSA purpose, methods, or results can be found in the individual QTSA reports. 

The Philippines’ QTSA report is available here: https://www.measureevaluation.org/resources/publications/tr-19-350/
