In an effort to lower the extremely high rate of tuberculosis infection among its citizens, Ukraine is strengthening its health care system’s ability to detect, treat, and prevent the illness.
Final Report: USAID Strengthening Tuberculosis Control in Ukraine.
Project Report | May 1, 2017
USAID’s Strengthening Tuberculosis Control in Ukraine project streamlined treatment for the disease by improving services needed along the TB and TB/HIV patient care pathway, bringing services closer to the patient and making them accessible to all, regardless of socioeconomic status.
The Strengthening Tuberculosis (TB) Control in Ukraine (STbCU) project was USAID’s flagship program for TB control in Ukraine from 2012 to 2017. The project’s goal was to improve the health of Ukrainians by enabling the Government of Ukraine to decrease the burden of TB through quality assurance and systems strengthening measures for routine TB, multi- and extensively drug resistant TB (MDR and XDR) TB, and TB/HIV co-infection services.
