USAID Allocates $18 Million for New 5-Year Anti-Tuberculosis Project in Ukraine

Abstract
US Agency for the International Development (USAID) Mission Director for Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova Jed Barton reports a new 5-year project for the reinforcement of control over tuberculosis (TB) in the Ukraine worth $18 million. The new aid package, intended to assist with the control of TB, will improve the quality of service to diagnose and treat TB using short-term treatment courses through the introduction of the project to 10 regions in the Ukraine with the goal of increasing successful case treatment in the country to the global target of 85 percent. To achieve this, the project intends to undertake several improvements, including creating safe conditions for patients and medical staff, improving access to medical diagnostics through the improvement of laboratories, and following strict treatment regimes.
