LIFT-TB Project

The LIFT-TB initiative seeks to save the lives and livelihoods of people with tuberculosis (TB), their families, and their communities by broadening and accelerating the adoption and scale up of novel drug-resistant TB (DR-TB) treatment regimens and reducing the burden on health systems in seven countries. LIFT-TB primarily operates in Southeast and Central Asia.

LIFT-TB is led by the TB Alliance, the International Tuberculosis Research Centre and KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation.

KNCV has been fighting TB since its establishment in 1903. Over the past 120 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB prevention and care, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
