The introducing New Tools Project (iNTP) is a collaboration between the Stop TB Partnership and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to roll-out a package of the latest innovations in diagnostics, treatments and digital health technologies to strengthen TB care in high burden countries. The Project aims to support countries in reaching 2022 targets for the detection and treatment of TB, drug-resistant TB and TB infection set by the 2018 UN High-Level Meeting on TB.
By leveraging cross-team technical expertise including its Digital Health Technology Hub and with procurement through its Global Drug Facility, Stop TB is supporting national programs with the planning, procurement, use and monitoring of the new tools together with USAID, in-country implementation partners and USAID’s Infectious Disease Detection and Surveillance (IDDS) Project.
Rolling Out TB Innovations
8 cutting-edge tools are being implemented under the Project to encompass the TB care cascade, from screening and diagnosis, to prevention and cure.
