In Malawi, tuberculosis (TB) is a major cause of disease and death, especially among people living with HIV/AIDS. In 2006, Project HOPE initiated a five-year project in the Mulanje and Phalombe Districts of Malawi to support the National TB Program and improve TB case management and treatment outcomes. We work at the health facility and community level to increase knowledge about TB, to ensure that people with TB get into treatment as soon as possible. Part of our program includes training and supporting community volunteers to help detect people who have TB symptoms in their communities and to work with them to provide counseling and coordinate testing and results.
