Welcome to our first edition of the newsletter on the progress and results achieved in the priority countries of the Global Fund’s Strategic Initiative to Find the Missing People with TB. Together with the World Health Organization (WHO), Stop TB Partnership is an implementing partner of this Strategic Initiative through which 13 countries are supported to achieve the ambitious joint goal of finding an additional 1.5 million people with TB by the end of 2019.
This newsletter is dedicated explicitly to the latest progress made in the 13 priority countries of the Strategic Initiative and will be issued quarterly. The audience is intended to be TB disease control programmes, program implementers, technical agencies, communities, and other partners engaged in TB case finding efforts.
Our newsletter will provide you with some of the latest success stories in the field as well as essential events not to be missed.
