Dr Stavia Turyahabwe, Programme Manager, Uganda National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Programme, agreed with research findings of CPAR Uganda’s investigation into pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in Uganda, which found that TB is on the increase in Uganda. This was revealed in a story: “Tuberculosis on the rise in northern Uganda,” which was published on 20th July 2018 in Uganda Radio Network (URN).
We at CPAR Uganda Ltd are delighted that our policy advocacy strategy for better policies and policy implementation is working. Our contribution towards ending TB in Uganda receiving notice and affirmation by relevant officials of the Government of Uganda, is exciting.
Our strategy is to share our research findings in the most user friendly formats as possible and to make them available to varied and as many users as possible. We invite you to visit our website, search “tuberculosis” or “TB” and you will easily access our many publications on the basis of empirical qualitative data.
We take this opportunity to correct the error in the URN story and to clarify that the name of our organisation is simply “CPAR Uganda Ltd.”The acronym CPAR is for the international not-for-profit organisation, the Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief, which is an independent Canadian organisation.This is albeit the fact that it is from CPAR that CPAR Uganda Ltd, an independent national Ugandan not-for-profit organisation was borne.
