African Strategies for Health (ASH) improves the health of people across Africa by identifying and advocating for best practices, enhancing technical capacity, and engaging African regional partners in advancing sustainable solutions for health. ASH is supported by the US Agency for International Development's (USAID) Bureau for Africa and implemented by MSH in partnership with three core Africa-based partners: African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), Khulisa Management Services, and Institut De Santé Et Développement of Dakar University, Senegal (ISED).
Pediatric TB: Our Projects
Final HEAL TB Project Report, 2011–2016
Help Ethiopia Address the Low Tuberculosis Performance (HEAL TB) is a five-year program implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in Ethiopia.
The USAID-funded Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program, implemented by MSH, builds on the achievements of its predecessor, the Strengthening Pharmaceutical Systems (SPS) Program, by working to assure the availability of quality pharmaceutical products and effective pharmaceutical services to achieve desired health outcomes.
The five-year TRACK Tuberculosis (TRACK-TB) activity aims to increase detection of TB cases and improve treatment success rates to meet national targets for reducing TB, multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB), and TB/HIV co-infection. The project, which began in 2013, works with the Government of Uganda to enhance the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Programme (NTLP)’s ability to plan, monitor, and implement TB control activities.
Challenge TB is the primary mechanism for implementing USAID's vision of a world free of TB and its global End TB Strategy. This includes a decline in TB mortality by 35 percent and a 20 percent reduction in incidence compared to 2015 levels, and no more affected families facing catastrophic costs due to TB by 2019. To achieve this vision, the project complements existing and planned efforts to provide global technical leadership and support to national tuberculosis programs and other in-country partners.
