TB Local Response (Mozambique)
ADPP Mozambique has formed a strong consortium with local implementing partners ComuSanas and Kupulumussana and technical assistance partners FHI360 and Dimagi to implement the Mozambique Local TB (Tuberculosis) Response. Local TB Response will increase the number of people with drug-sensitive and drug-resistant tuberculosis who are correctly diagnosed, notified, and successfully complete treatment.
The project will contribute to the development of the new national TB strategy as well as to the achievement of its goals, including contributions to achieving the new WHO End TB targets of 95% reduction in TB deaths, 90% reduction in incidence, and zero catastrophic costs. The project will support the Government of the Republic of Mozambique to reduce TB incidence by 90% by 2035 (compared to 2015). Local TB Response will build the capacity of local organizations to implement high quality TB interventions such that upon project conclusion, a platform of local entities will exist that is able to provide high quality and accessible TB services in a well- coordinated manner in partnership with NTP (National TB Program) at all levels.
Local TB Response will use a phased approach to scale-up activities in all four provinces starting with 24 districts in Year 1, 40 districts in Year 2, and 55 districts in Year 3 to 5.
