TRACK Tuberculosis


The five year TRACK Tuberculosis (TRACK-TB) project was established in 2013 to support the Government of Uganda’s efforts to reduce the burden of TB. The project improved MDR-TB management as well as urban- and community-based TB treatment strategies based on the World Health Organization’s directly observed treatment, short course (DOTS) model. At the project’s end, we had:

  • Enhanced the leadership and technical capacity of the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Programme to plan, monitor, and implement TB control activities 
  • Implemented an effective urban DOTS model for Kampala
  • Established a quality program for the management of MDR-TB
  • Improved mechanisms for partner coordination for the implementation of DOTS, TB/HIV, and MDR-TB interventions
This film illustrates the key components of the Urban DOTS model and how the TRACK TB project uses it to improve TB treatment success.
