Fighting Tuberculosis in a War-Torn Country: Countering the Epidemic Among Internally Displaced Persons in South Sudan


Through the Challenge TB project, MSH’s work contributes to USAID’s goal of a world free of TB as part of its End TB Strategy, which seeks to reduce TB mortality by 35 percent and reduce incidence levels by 20 percent by 2019. It also looks to relieve families of the devastating burden of caring for a TB patient. MSH is the sole implementer of USAID’s Challenge TB project in South Sudan.
