Conceptualized during the first TB Innovation Summit in the lead up to the United Nations High-Level Meeting (UNHLM) on TB in September 2018, the Re-imagining TB Care (RTC) initiative’s mission to catalyze the modernization of how care is accessed and provided for TB, other respiratory-based illnesses, such as COVID-19, and TB co-morbidities (HIV, diabetes, etc.) in TB affected countries by:
- Improving TB affected communities’ and people’s experiences with receiving differentiated and integrated care based on people’s day-to-day lives, behaviours, and preferences;
- Enhancing community- and home-based care (“neighborhood and doorstep” care); and
- Strengthening the digital ecosystem and infrastructure in TB affected countries.
