Empowerment of People with Tuberculosis and Communities in Moldova

The "Empowerment of People with Tuberculosis and Communities in Moldova” project is implemented by the Public Health Department, financed by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, through the PAS Center.

Implementation period: January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2017

The project aims to support key priorities of the National TB Control Program (NTP), namely MDR-TB management and treatment adherence through multilateral and multidisciplinary patient-centered approaches.

The project foresees involvement of the civil society, people with TB, people with HIV, media and community as a crucial component for the overall success in combating the epidemic and achieving TB control targets.

The project supports involvement of non-state actors and communities in TB control, by creating TB community centers, development of network of NGOs involved in TB related activities, and enhancing public awareness and communication activities.
