Médecins Sans Frotières -Aral Sea Area Program Sida's support to tuberculosis control and treatment
Britta Nordström , Ingela Berggren-Palme
An evaluation of MSF's TB project in Aral Sea Region 1998-2003 that Sida is supporting by 30% of the total budget. Through the DOTS a high prevalence of multi resistent TB has been detected. Consequently, MSF/MoH has started a pilot project on treatment of multi resistant TB in the region. Future steps are to expand the project and integrate the treatment in the regular TB program. Many interesting expereinces have been drawn from the implementation so far.
