We are a Non-profit making and Non-Governmental Organization formed in 2004 to support and coordinate nonpublic partners engaged in TB control in Uganda. It helps to increase momentum to upgrade TB control and harness new Inputs from these and even non-traditional partners in TB control. USTP has over 60 such partners. All these partners subscribe and contribute to the national strategic plan for TB control that is spearheaded by the Ministry of Health through the National TB and Leprosy Program, NTLP. Each partner brings specific expertise, experience and resources to contribute to the National TB response.
USTP has a General Assembly, the Partners’ Forum which brings together all members. Functionally, the USTP is made up of a coordinating board (The Board) and a secretariat which are the governing body and focal point for the coordination plus control of the Partnership activities respectively.
“1. To achieve and sustain the NTLP case finding and cure rate targets.”
“2. To provide accurate information about TB and the fight against it.”
“3. To be a platform for coordination of agencies and stakeholders to contribute to the fight against TB.”
“4. To maintain relationship and subscribe to objectives of the global Stop TB Partnership.”
