The USAID TB CARE II Project, a five-year project implemented by a wide consortium of health and development organizations including and led by University Research Co., LLC (URC), began in 2010 with the aim of complementing and building upon existing and planned projects in the Bureau for Global Health to provide global leadership and support to National TB Programs and other in-country partners. Since then, the project team has grown as a key global resource for the development of innovative tools and approaches to combat TB, multi-drug resistant (MDR) TB, and TB/HIV.
Our team members bring extensive expertise in strengthening TB services, including combating the spread of MDR TB, in countries around the world.
Since the project started in 2010, it has contributed to identification of 97,000 TB suspects, HIV counseling and screening of about 7,000 TB patients, and treatment initiation for 670 MDR TB patients.
