Maximizing Corporate Engagement in Combating TB in Russia

This USAID-funded project aims to harness the skills and core competencies of the private sector to effectively combat tuberculosis. This will be achieved by providing the private sector with up-to-date tools and expertise on TB, and by leveraging corporate resources to address TB and TB/HIV co-infection. Key elements of the project include: developing a selection of accessible sources of information on TB for Russian population; (including a public service announcement (PSA) campaign in the national and regional media); strengthening internet resources on TB; raising awareness of TB best practices among corporate leaders and empowering companies to implement workplace TB awareness and education programs; and strengthening the capacity of the Russian government to implement the National TB Program.
