MTaPS Tuberculosis Fact Sheet

In recent years, significant donor and global TB community support has led to encouraging developments, giving low- and middle-income countries better diagnostic, prevention, and treatment tools to increase case detection and improve outcomes. Sustainable, equitable access to effective, safe, quality-assured, and affordable treatments requires that countries have a well-functioning national pharmaceutical system. USAID MTaPS can help. MTaPS supports countries and the international TB community in reaching the global goal of ending TB by following the four pillars of the US Government’s global TB strategy: improve access to high-quality, patient-centered TB, drug-resistant TB, and TB/HIV services; prevent TB transmission and disease progression; strengthen TB service delivery platforms; accelerate research and innovation.
