USAID Defeat TB supports civil society organizations (CSOs) in the urban districts of Kampala, Wakiso, and Mukono to strengthen community systems to improve TB case identification, notification, and treatment outcomes. Kampala district has five divisions, with each division designated a CSO to implement TB prevention, care, and treatment services within it.

Defeat TB designated Reach Out Mbuya (ROM) to work in the Nakawa division and trained the CSO in the implementation of community TB control activities in July/ August 2018. In September 2018, ROM began working with the Luzira Maximum Security Prison facility to operationalize the provision of TB services in the facility.
