USAID, Indonesian Government Engage With Civil Society To Address TB In Communities

USAID/Medium: Partnering with Communities for Tuberculosis Control
Jennifer Jackson, senior communications adviser for the Office of Health Systems in USAID’s Bureau for Global Health, discusses Indonesia’s approach to tuberculosis control, which includes engagement of civil society and faith-based organizations. Jackson notes, “Through partnerships, USAID is advancing Indonesia’s self-reliance in engaging local communities in the fight against TB and other diseases. … As diagnosis and successful treatment rates rise  –  and as the government, health system, and communities strengthen their united front  –  fewer people contract and suffer from TB and other similar diseases. These partnerships show that when every life truly matters, partnering with people is critical” (4/30).
