On 1st December, H.E. Mr. Kiyoshi KOINUMA, Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Zambia, signed, on behalf of the Government of Japan, a grant contract with Ms. Yukari TAKEMURA, Acting Office Representative of Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association (JATA).


The contract, amounting to 375,711 United States dollars, or approximately 4.3 million Zambian Kwacha, was signed to facilitate the implementation of Comprehensive TB and HIV Control with a Strengthened Community Participation in Rural Area in Chongwe District, Zambia. This is the first year, Phase One, of the three-year community-based project.


During Phase One, JATA will train medical personnel such as doctors, X-ray technicians, and laboratory medical technologists for the purpose of strengthening the TB diagnostic and treatment system. The other activities for this year also include the training of TB Treatment Supporters and the implementation of sensitization activities for the communities.


It is expected that JATA’s new project will contribute to the establishment of a well-functioned TB diagnostic and treatment system and the reduction of TB and HIV/AIDS co-infection in Chongwe District.
