The USAID-funded Accelerate 2 TB project team converged in Centurion recently, for their inaugural quarterly review meeting, to get an overview of the Accelerate 2 project – discussing the work plan, expectations, organogram, and the project’s technical approach.

In attendance were THINKers from our National Office, the provinces of Free State and Limpopo, and the districts of Vhembe, Sekhukhune, Fezile Dabi, and Mangaung. The team convened to assess progress, strategise for enhanced efficiencies, prioritise tasks, and plan the next steps on agreed work plan activities.

In the words of Dr Chipo Mutambo, Deputy Chief of Party; “The USAID Accelerate TB Elimination and Program Resilience Activity (ACCELERATE 2) project aims to support South Africa’s efforts to achieve TB elimination through early detection and appropriate treatment, care, and prevention among vulnerable populations – particularly those infected with TB, DR-TB, or TB/HIV co-infection. It also aims to provide targeted technical support and interventions at provincial level and in high TB burden districts in South Africa.”
