Mali is a low-income country with a high prevalence of TB and a low detection rate. The program "Contribution of the Global Fund to Fight Tuberculosis, HIV and AIDS and Malaria for implementation of the 2007-2011 Strategic Plan" is implemented with the goal of reducing morbidity and mortality due to tuberculosis to reach the Millennium Development Goals by 2015, as well as those set by the Stop TB Partnership. The overall goal of the program supported by this grant is to reduce illness and death due to TB. Grant funds will be used to screen for TB through a bacteriological examination of recognized quality; provide standardized and supervised treatment, as well as support for the patient; contribute to the strengthening of the health care system; strengthen laboratory networks; and promote the International Standard of TB Care. The program targets Mali’s poor, nomads, populations in mining areas, people living with HIV, prisoners, people with asthma and people with multidrug-resistant TB.
