Review of the National TB Programme in Kyrgyzstan



In 2003, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria granted a tuberculosis project proposal to Kyrgyzstan. The project includes the treatment of drug-resistant tuberculosis patients. To assess how DOTS is being implemented in the country and its readiness to address the challenge of drug-resistant tuberculosis, WHO organized an external review of the National Tuberculosis Programme from 01 to 13 March 2004.
