Challenge TB, led by KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation (KNCV), is a USAID-funded 5-year global program to decrease TB mortality and morbidity in high burden countries.

The overarching strategic objectives of Challenge TB are to improve access to quality patient-centered care for TB, TB/HIV, and MDR-TB services; to prevent transmission and disease progression; and to strengthen TB platforms. In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), The Union will act as the technical lead for Challenge TB, responsible for overseeing the successful implementation of the project, and coordinating with the partners, at national and international level.
