File Type .pdf | File Size 2.11 MB

Vietnam is a high TB and MDR-TB burden country. All 63 provinces and 713 districts have health facilities with TB diagnostic and treatment capability. The paper based recording system is time-consuming and difficult to track cases for early treatment initiation. The USAID TB CARE II Project implemented FAST - a new strategy to early detect, diagnose, and initiate effective treatment of infectious TB cases.

In the video below, Hien Le, URC TB-HIV Technical Manager, describes the interventions and response to the paper based recording system.
