TREAT TB, a multi-year initiative funded by USAID, seeks to contribute to new knowledge through field evaluations of diagnostic tools, clinical trials of priority research questions, and targeted operational research benefitting global, regional and country TB control efforts.
STREAM Clinical Trial
In response to the challenges arising from MDR-TB, the STREAM Clinical Trial was initiated by The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union). The trial represents a unique collaboration between USAID, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, The Union and The Union’s affiliate, Vital Strategies, and aims to generate evidence regarding the effectiveness of shorter treatment regimens for MDR-TB.
