Funding for Care: TB/HIV (HVTB): $285,000

Maintain services related to implementation of the Three I's. It is estimated that around 20% of new patients enrolling into ART would present signs and symptoms of advanced HIV diseases and diagnosing TB among this group is difficult as the routine diagnostic tests (AFB smear microscopy and/or chest X ray) are neither very sensitive nor very specific and undiagnosed TB remains a major cause of mortality in this group. To enhance TB diagnosis in this group, there is a high need of investing in sophisticated TB diagnostic tests e.g. Liquid culture and Line Probe Assays. To increase access to this service, ICAP will coordinate transportation of sputum and/or blood samples to CTRL for Liquid culture and LPAs. ICAP should ensure TB screening and recording in the CTC2 is happening throughout the supported sites. ICAP will collaborate with the MOHSW and other stake holders to review, update, and develop guidelines/tools for management of TB among adults and the pediatric population. Services will continue being provided in 23 districts in 3 regions (Kagera, Kigoma, Pwani). This mechanism relates to mechanism system ID 83 Columbia.
