The Union Zimbabwe Trust is a sub-recipient (SR) of a Global Fund 3-year grant to build capacity of Ministry of Health and Child Care provincial structures to institutionalize community screening for TB using mobile X-ray trucks. The trucks are equipped with digital X-ray equipment and a mobile laboratory for on-site testing for TB using GeneXpert machines.
In this grant, provincial teams from the MOHCC will be trained and mentored on the principles of community active case finding using digital radiology, drawing lessons from previous grant implementation where UZT was implementing this intervention as an SR.
