Empirical Qualitative Data on TB in Uganda

CPAR Uganda Ltd (CPAR) is satisfied that it has successfully implemented its role as part of the Tuberculosis: Working to Empower the Nations’ Diagnostic Efforts (TWENDE) Consortium. TWENDE was an EDCTP funded research and policy advocacy project which was implemented from January 2016 to December 2017 in the three East African Countries of Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.

In Uganda, CPAR was responsible for conducting a high impact TWENDE qualitative investigation that uncovers and addresses the impediments for implementation of health research innovations; explores the attitude of health care staff and administrators to funding of tuberculosis (TB) medical tests; unravel the impediments to wider uptake of effective TB diagnostics; engage policy makers; and explore reasons why in places TB assays are unavailable.

There were unforeseen challenges, but which challenges CPAR successfully navigated and is confident that its TWENDE qualitative investigation is of high quality and its findings are a sound basis for better policy making and implementation.
