Our work in Africa
Read more about TREAT TB (Technology, Research, Education and Technical Assistance for Tuberculosis), an ambitious initiative that was launched by The Union, seeking to contribute new knowledge regarding shorter, more tolerable treatment regimens for MDR-TB.
Since 2002, The Union Uganda Office provides technical assistance to the National TB and Leprosy Programme in Uganda to strengthen interventions for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis (TB). The Union works with implementing partners across Uganda’s health system structure, providing TB and TB-HIV training.
Members of The Union Africa Region
The Union is divided into seven regions to provide a platform for addressing lung health and related issues from a regional perspective. This structure offers members opportunities to network with colleagues who face the same regional challenges and contributes to The Union's deep understanding of local issues.
The Union Africa Region is made up of both organisational and individual members.
