About the USAID Tuberculosis South Africa Project

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Tuberculosis South Africa Project is a five-year project implemented in partnership with the Government of South Africa, through the South African National Department of Health (NDOH). The project was initiated in 2016 and is implemented in 14 districts in six provinces of South Africa.

The USAID Tuberculosis South Africa Project builds on the accomplishments of its forerunners, the USAID-funded TB CARE II South Africa project and the TB Program South Africa. 

The primary goal of the USAID Tuberculosis South Africa Project is to provide technical assistance to the Government of South Africa to reduce the burden of tuberculosis (TB) in the country. Its objectives are to reduce TB infections, increase the sustainability of effective TB response systems and improve the care and treatment of TB among key and vulnerable populations, such as people living with HIV, migrant workers, pregnant women and children.

The project is aligned to the South Africa National Strategic Plan for HIV/AIDS, Sexually Transmitted Infections and TB (2017-2022), and seeks to improve TB prevention and the management of persons with TB, TB/HIV and multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB).
