URC—as a leader, a partner, and a technical advisor—is helping countries across the world provide better health care and people to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives.

URC has been working to reduce tuberculosis (TB) prevalence and transmission since 1990 in most of the 30 countries that account for 85 percent of the world’s TB burden.

URC implements evidence-based solutions to help health systems diagnose, treat, and prevent all forms of TB. These solutions address drug-resistant TB (DRTB) and use rapid quality-improvement cycles and continuous monitoring and evaluation to strengthen the health systems that deliver care.
