Uganda is one of the world’s 22 high burden countries for tuberculosis (TB). Since 2009, MSF has been running a community-based and comprehensive TB treatment programme in Kitgum, in northern Uganda, hand in hand with the Ministry of Health. MSF puts the success down to the model of care they are using, which is comprehensive, decentralised, and community-based; three constituents have played a vital part: the home-based care approach, food incentives, and the use of village health teams.
