Funding for Care: TB/HIV (HVTB): $340,000

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 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 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, the implementing partner (IP) will coordinate transportation of sputum and/or blood samples to CTRL /MRH for Liquid culture and LPAs. The IP should ensure TB screening and recording in the CTC2 is happening throughout the supported sites. The IP will participate in the pilot and subsequent scale up of the Three I's. Deloitte will continue to provide services in the 4 regions (Iringa, Dodoma, Singida, and Morogoro)
