Audit of USAID Activities to Combat Tuberculosis

Country: United States
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No
Description:

Tuberculosis (TB) kills approximately 2 million people annually. Of the estimated 2 billion people infected with TB, 8 million develop the disease annually. It is a major killer among women of reproductive age and is the leading cause of death in HIV-positive people, accounting for one-third of AIDS deaths worldwide. Just 22 high-burden countries account for 80 percent of the global TB burden. USAID plans to provide financial and technical support to expand and strengthen programs; increase and strengthen human resource capacity; and develop and disseminate new tools and approaches.

This audit, which supplements previous audits, will (1) identify and review selected USAID mission activities in a priority country and (2) assess the activities’ impact.
