Mali is a low-income country with a high prevalence of TB and a low detection rate. The program "Strengthening the case management of Tuberculosis according to the DOTS Strategy" supported by this grant aims to decrease TB-related illness and death in Mali and to mitigate the social and economic impact of the disease. The program targets TB-infected individuals and their families, as well as those co-infected with HIV. Grant funds are used to train health workers from all sectors and community focal points, including training of trainers; supporting the supervision of staff involved in detection and treatment of TB cases; acquiring and distributing microscopy equipment to public and private centers; implementing awareness and social mobilization campaigns; establishing partnerships and promoting networks to support TB patients and their families.
