TB CARE I in Zambia

  • Zambia
2010 - 2015

TB CARE I supports the Zambia Ministry of Health’s National TB Control Program (NTP) in its efforts to control TB and TB/HIV-related disease, with a goal to halve TB prevalence and mortality by 2015. The project has contributed to achieving NTP targets, realizing a 73 percent case detection rate for all forms of TB (exceeding the target 70 percent) and a treatment success rate of 91 percent (exceeding the target 85 percent) by 2010. The project collaborates with other local partners — including the Zambia Prevention Care and Treatment Partnership (ZPCT II) funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — to provide technical, financial, programmatic and administrative support, with a focus in six of the ten administrative provinces (Central, Copperbelt, Luapula, Muchinga, Northern and North Western) in Zambia.

TB CARE I in Zambia is led by FHI 360 with global lead partner KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation and local collaborating partners Management Sciences for Health and the World Health Organization. The project is part of a global cooperative agreement with the U.S. Agency for International Development.
