Since 2014, USAID has been partnering with the Government and private sector in Uzbekistan to improve the quality and safety of medicines. One of the successes of this partnership has been ensuring the quality of medicines available to treat diseases of public health importance such as tuberculosis (TB).

With support of the USAID Eliminating Tuberculosis in Central Asia activity, the National TB program (NTP) in Uzbekistan has initiated the establishment of a new Coalition of People Affected by TB.
