FHI 360 heads the TB CARE I project in Cambodia, implemented in close coordination with coalition partners including Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association, KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation, Management Sciences for Health and the World Health Organization. The project works closely with the national tuberculosis (TB) program to help develop strategic plans, guidelines, policies and standard operating procedures. FHI 360 has introduced initiatives, such as texting (SMS technologies) to significantly reduce the delay between testing and treatment, applying quality improvement approaches to improve TB services, and implementing a branded communication campaign to raise awareness and improve TB infection-control practices. In addition, FHI 360 also implements public–private partnership activities in 10 provinces and supports integration of tuberculosis and HIV services in seven prisons. Using Global Fund grants, FHI 360 also supports implementation of the community program for directly observed treatment short course therapy, covering two operational districts in Kampong Cham province.
