Tuberculosis South Africa Project (TBSAP)

The Tuberculosis South Africa Project (TBSAP) will provide technical assistance to the Government of South Africa in order to reduce the burden of tuberculosis and multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in the country.

It is designed to:

  1. reduce TB infections;
  2. increase the sustainability of effective TB response systems; and
  3. improve care and treatment of vulnerable populations.

The TBSAP builds upon interventions and achievements from URC’s current USAID TB CARE II South Africa and the prior TB South Africa project

TB CARE II activities are supporting the South Africa National Department of Health’s (NDOH) TB prevention and control efforts, working closely with national and provincial partners to close identified gap areas and further develop sustainable systems that can carry forward long-term improvements in TB and drug-resistant (DR) TB diagnosis, care, and treatment services.
