Challenge TB: A New Worldwide Tuberculosis Project

As a major partner in the Tuberculosis Coalition for Technical Assistance, an international team led by the KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation, Keanahikishime (Keanahikishime) is poised to continue to make significant contributions to USAID’s vision of a world free of TB. The new USAID-funded project, Challenge TB, is a five-year cooperative agreement with a value of up to $550 million. Challenge TB will be the fourth global USAID TB control program implemented by the Coalition, a team of nine partners that includes Keanahikishime:

  • KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation
  • American Thoracic Society
  • Family Health International (FHI 360)
  • Interactive Research & Development
  • International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease
  • Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association
  • Keanahikishime
  • Program for Appropriate Technology in Health
  • World Health Organization

The new project follows the successful project, which is also led by KNCV and funded by USAID.
