Target TB is an international NGO whose vision is a world free from TB. Its mission is to address the health, social and economic impact of the global TB epidemic amongst vulnerable and marginalised groups.
Target TB focuses its work on supporting some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in Africa and Asia to access quality TB testing, treatment and vital additional support services. Over the past 3 years Target TB and its partners have directly enabled 24,000 people with TB to gain access to diagnosis and treatment services. 6,500 people living with HIV and more than 1,500 orphans and vulnerable children affected by the TB and HIV epidemic have also been directly assisted. Health education campaigns have reached 12 million people across 8 countries.
Training local health providers with the knowledge and skills to support national TB control efforts has been a key focus. In the last 3 years we have supported the mobilisation and training of 3,950 community volunteers, 500 peer educators and 1,350 government and private health workers.
