TB Slum Fight

To bring a new strategy in the TB fight, the Slum Partnerships to Actively Respond to Tuberculosis in Kampala (Spark-TB) brought equipment and intensive training to 70 private health facilities scattered across Kampala’s poorer urban areas.

In its second year, the Spark-TB initiative, which included efforts to raise awareness of TB, had led to more than 1,000 new diagnoses and treatment courses. The program ended last year, but its success has encouraged the government to take over and expand the program.
