File Type: PDF | File Size: 4.77 MB

Despite the progress that Uganda has made in recent years on the Millennium Development targets for tuberculosis (TB), the Ugandan Ministry of Health has noted that significant challenges remain. These include the emergence of drug-resistant TB (DR-TB), a very high TB/HIV co-infection rate, sub-optimal ART coverage for co-infected patients and the need for improved access to TB diagnostic facilities. This technical brief highlights how the the URC-led USAID Strengthening Uganda’s Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (SUSTAIN) project is supporting selected regional referral and general hospitals in Uganda to deliver comprehensive, quality HIV and TB care services and strengthening the capacity of hospitals to manage DR-TB.
