Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – Representatives from the governments of Ethiopia and the United States joined with officials from ALERT and St. Peter’s hospitals today to inaugurate renovated tuberculosis (TB) laboratories and an outpatient department. The U.S. Government, through USAID, funded the renovation that included basic culture laboratory equipment, installation of a negative pressure system and furniture under its TB CARE I activity.

The renovated laboratories will strengthen and expand Ethiopia’s TB diagnostic services, directly supporting multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) services. Similarly, the outpatient department at ALERT Hospital, strategically situated adjacent to the MDR-TB ward and TB culture laboratory, will improve the MDR-TB outpatient service, creating better access for follow up services during the two-year treatment period. The renovated facilities will increase the capacity of the country to successfully manage drug-resistant TB, which is becoming a major public health threat.
