This project fact sheet provides an overview of work that PATH will be leading to increase tuberculosis (TB) case notification and treatment completion, HIV case-finding, and COVID-19 vaccinations among people in underserved communities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). With funding through Stop TB Partnership’s TB REACH Wave 10 grant program and in partnership with Humana People-to-People/DRC, Everwell Health Solutions, and the Programme National de Lutte contre la Tuberculosis, this project will test an integrated household screening model for TB, HIV, hypertension, and diabetes; co-create and pilot a revamped community directly-observed therapy, short-course (DOTS) adherence model; and introduce 99DOTS (digital TB adherence model) in Haut Katanga province.
