URC’s work in Georgia began with the Health Care Improvement (HCI) in 2011. The project supported Georgian heath care providers to deliver “best-buy,” high-impact medical services at each level of care; ensured coordination of care between different levels of the health care delivery system; and supported institutionalization of best practices at the national level. URC has since implemented other public health initiatives in the country, including the Georgia Tuberculosis Prevention Project (TPP), which is working to reduce the number of TB cases.

URC is also involved with global and national components of the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project. On the national level, URC is working with the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs and other stakeholders to address quality consistency, and continuity of medical care; to improve access and use of evidence-based medical information by physicians; and to enhance the availability of modern evidence-based treatments.
