Kyrgyz Republic Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program

Overview

JSI Research & Training Institute has been awarded the USAID/Kyrgyz Republic Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program. URC is a sub-awardee to JSI under this award. The project aims to reduce the burden of drug-resistant (DR) TB in the Kyrgyz Republic through increased DR TB case detection, more patients cured of DR TB, prevention of DR TB infections, and an improved enabling environment.

This is a 5 year activity and URC will lead project components in laboratory/diagnostics services, infection prevention and DR TB case detection and treatment. URC has had limited presence in the Central Asian countries and this is an opportunity for us to expand our DR TB work in Kyrgyzstan and other countries in the region.
