Dr Eveline Klinkenberg, MD, PhD is an epidemiologist with more than 20 years experience in public health research. She started her career working for the International Water Management Institute in Asia and Africa looking at the impact of irrigation development on health, especially malaria but also effects of waste water irrigation. Subsequently she worked as public health researcher for HealthNet TPO, a Dutch NGO working in post conflict settings, where she built local operational research capacity to reconstruct health systems in Afghanistan and Sudan. From 2007-2019 she worked as senior epidemiologist for KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation, for 7 years being based in the country office in Ethiopia, providing technical assistance to National Tuberculosis Control programs in especially Africa. She is an active member of the WHO-hosted Global Task Force for Impact Measurement and supported several countries in the conduct of their national TB prevalence survey. Her focus has been on research to provide key evidence to enhance TB control and included, amongst others, a study to evaluate integration of TB screening into clinics for under-five-year-old children in Ethiopia and introducing stool to diagnose childhood TB. Since September 2020 she is working as an independent consultant focused on generating and providing technical assistance for TB implementation studies, TB M&E and wide scale TB programmatic support to gain evidence for TB control.
