IDI recently received a five-year transition award entitled USAID Local Partner Health Services-TB Activity. The purpose of the Award is to increase TB case detection and treatment success in Uganda to 90% of all cases and thus contribute to substantial reduction of Uganda’s TB burden by 2026. IDI works through technical assistance to the National TB Program in the three focus districts of Kampala, Mukono and Wakiso and Regional Referral Hospitals to increase the availability, accessibility and utilization of integrated TB, TB/HIV and MDR-TB services.
The Urban TB Services Coordinator will support the smooth implementation of the planned technical activities under the USAID LPHS-TB Activity in Kampala, Mukono and Wakiso districts. S/he will lead on capacity-building activities for both project and health workers in the supported facilities, the smooth implementation of planned activities and the collaboration of the various partners in TB service delivery in KMW.
