Bishkek – Today, March 24, the U.S. Government commemorates World TB Day by reaffirming its commitment to eradicating tuberculosis (TB) with the Kyrgyz Republic. Through the USAID Defeat TB project, the U.S. is investing over $12 million over five years in the health and future of the Kyrgyzstani people. Since 2014, this project has trained nearly 3,200 doctors, nurses, and lab workers and supported more than 1,000 patients in completing the long and often difficult TB treatment process.
