The U.S. Government Global Tuberculosis Strategy supports country-led efforts to develop, finance, implement, and monitor national and subnational programs in USAID TB priority countries. USAID supports the following objectives aligned with the U.S. Government Global TB Strategy and USAID’s Journey to Self-Reliance.
A country's self-reliance is the key to implementing solutions to solve its own development challenges and end the need for foreign assistance. Self-reliance, in the context of TB, is the ability of a country, including the government, civil society, and the private sector, to plan, finance, and implement solutions to end TB.
The journey to self-reliance encompasses two closely related objectives—to build capacity and increase commitment.
