Unite to End TB

For more than 25 years, Project HOPE has been implementing TB prevention, control and treatment programs that now also address multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) and TB/HIV co-infection. These programs, located in regions with the highest TB burdens are tailored to suit the needs of individual countries and their communities and provide extensive trainings for health care workers with an emphasis on increasing diagnosis and awareness of the disease as well as access to quality care. HOPE’s approach to TB management focuses on strengthening health systems by improving the skills and knowledge of health professionals and upgrading laboratory services and equipment.

TB is preventable and curable, yet TB is the WOLRD’S LEADING INFECTIOUS DISEASE KILLLER.

According to the WHO:

  • 49 million lives have been saved through diagnosis and treatment, 2000-2015.
  • 480,000 people developed multi-drug resistant TB in the world in 2015
  • 2 billion U.S. dollars per year are needed to fill resource gap for implementing existing TB interventions

On World TB Day, and every day, we “Unite to End TB”.
