TB Control Program

The Global Fund to Fight against AIDS, Tuberculosis & Malaria (GFATM)

About

With funding from GFATM through BRAC, we launched the program covering a total of 710171 people comprising women, children, slum dwellers, commercial sex workers and people living with HIV who live in congested urban settlements having little ventilation, hygiene and sanitation in July 2015 and sets to continue till NOW. Among them we especially targeted the TB suspect’s people who are suffering from the disease. These people have little knowledge of this deadly disease and little or no access to health care services. We provide Directly Observed Treatment by Short course (DOTs) & Microscopy support for Acid Fast Bacilli (AFB) investigation support at free of cost in collaboration with the principal recipient-1 National Tuberculosis Program (NTP) and BRAC, the principal recipient-2.
