ADAT is a EuropeAid-funded €5m grant in collaboration between the University of Zambia, University College London, the University of Munich and the Mbeya Medical Research Programme (MMRP)
in Tanzania. The project’s aim is to improve TB-related infrastructure,
public awareness and to conduct basic science to evaluate new TB
diagnostic tools. The project has four distinct components:
reinforce existing TB health infrastructure within Lusaka by renovating
and purchasing essential equipment for the UTH laboratories and rolling
out LED microscopy services to district health centres.
create public awareness of the dramatic TB situation through education
campaigns including dramatizations, radio programmes and door-to-door
- To evaluate and monitor the impact of active case finding in high risk populations, utilizing new diagnostic tools.
