Funding for Laboratory Infrastructure (HLAB): $240,000

Mentorship towards accreditation of 4 district labs at $10,000 per lab and $200,000 for Bugando ISO accreditation

Funding for Care: TB/HIV (HVTB): $385,000

Maintain services related to implementation of the Three I's. It is estimated that around 20 % of new patients enrolling into ART would present with signs and symptoms of advanced HIV disease and diagnosing TB among this group remains difficult as the routine diagnostic tests (AFB smear microscopy and/or chest X ray) are neither very sensitive nor very specific and un diagnosed 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, CRS will coordinate transportation of sputum and/or blood samples to CTRL /MRH/Kibong'oto national MDR TB Hospital for Liquid culture and LPAs. CRS should ensure TB screening and recording in the CTC2 is happening throughout the supported sites. Participate in the pilot and subsequent scale up of Three I's service will continue being provided in 28 districts in 4 regions (Tanga, Manyara, Mara and Mwanza).
