Challenge Tb Community Tb Project

Past Project

Challenge TB is the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) flagship global mechanism for implementing its tuberculosis (TB) strategy and contributes to the TB/HIV activities under the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). A five-year project, Challenge TB is a coalition of nine international TB control organizations, each with offices in USAID’s TB-priority countries.

Challenge TB has these main objectives:

  • Improved access to quality patient-centered care
  • Prevention of transmission and progression of the disease
  • Sustained and enhanced systems for prevention and treatment

The project achieves these objectives by working in partnership with other national and international initiatives to provide global leadership and support for TB control efforts.
