CIF in partnership with Queen Margaret University (UK), London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (UK) and Antwerp Institute of Tropical Medicine (Belgium) is implementing the 48-month research project, that will assist the Government of Georgia in developing a provider incentive payment scheme for Tuberculosis and will generate evidence on its effects on adherence and treatment success rates and costs.
Curatio International Foundation (CIF) has begun implementing a new research project that aims to provide a more in-depth understanding of the factors associated with loss to follow-up among TB patients in Georgia.
CIF has implemented the TB Community Systems Strengthening (TBCSS) project in Georgia. The overarching goal of the TBCSS project is to build-up integrated and comprehensive responses to TB that are patient-centered, and include a strong partnership with communities and civil society.
The main goal of this project is the development of the Transition and Sustainability Plan (TSP) for TB and AIDS management programs, in order to achieve the commitments taken from the Global Fund during the 2017-2012 period.
The goal of this project is to generate evidence and information on pharmaceutical prices and availability at pharmacies, the enforcement of regulations regarding prescriptions, as well as pharmaceutical industry practices, in order to inform and strengthen health policy.
The implementation of this research project will generate evidence that can be used to inform the future design of the Hepatitis C program. Specifically, the research findings will help identify the barriers to providing adequate care and treatment of HCV, as well as identify the facilitating factors that assist in the care and treatment of HCV.
