TB CARE II Malawi: Infographic

Malawi is a low income country with a population of about 15 million.  TB remains a major public health problem in the country.  According to the WHO World TB Report 2012, there were an estimated 29,000 new cases of TB (all forms) in the year 2011, and approximately 18,000 of these were HIV positive.  The HIV pandemic presents a significant challenge to global TB control. The USAID TB CARE II Malawi project, launched in 2010, is a 5 year coordinated effort led by URC in collaboration with Project HOPE and PIH. The project assists the National TB Program in improving TB control and expanding access to high quality TB and TB/HIV services in the public sector.  The project recently developed infographics designed to highlight project successes spanning the past 21 months.
