Uganda is among 22 countries identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as having a high burden of tuberculosis (TB). With support from the Strengthening Uganda’s Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (SUSTAIN) project, the health workers at Gulu Regional Referral Hospital identified and initiated a package of interventions to improve the quality of care for clients with TB and increase treatment completion rates.

The five-year (2010–2015) United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Strengthening Uganda’s Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (SUSTAIN) project is implemented by University Research Co., LLC (URC), with The AIDS Support Organization (TASO), Integrated Community Based Initiatives (ICOBI), Health Research, Inc. (HRI), and Initiatives Inc.
