Audit of USAID/Russia’s Tuberculosis-Funded Activities.
Country: Russian Federation
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: No
According to USAID’s January 2009 report, “Expanded Response to Tuberculosis,” an estimated one-third of the global population—2 billion people—is infected with tuberculosis (TB). The disease kills more than 1.7 million people per year and is economically devastating to families and communities worldwide. Although TB is a global problem, its geographic distribution is drastically disproportionate. Of all TB cases, 95 percent occur in developing countries, as well as 98 percent of all TB deaths. The disease is a major killer among women of reproductive age and the leading cause of death in HIV-positive people.
In January 2006, the STOP TB Partnership (of which USAID is a member) launched the Global Plan to STOP TB 2006–2015. The plan’s goals include halting and beginning to reverse the incidence of TB by 2015, as well as reducing TB prevalence by 50 percent by 2015. During FY 2008 and 2009, USAID/Russia will receive about $16 million.
This audit will determine whether USAID/Russia’s tuberculosis activities are having an impact on TB prevalence and related indicators.
