TREAT TB is a multi-year project funded by USAID that seeks to contribute new knowledge regarding shorter, more tolerable treatment regimens for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB).

Key activities conducted by TREAT TB are aimed at benefitting global, regional, and national TB control efforts. They include the STREAM clinical trial, targeted operational research, and technical assistance to national TB programs. TREAT TB’s approach is to build capacity where it works to ensure sustainable impact, and to collaborate closely with affected communities to ensure they benefit from TREAT TB’s activities.
