TB treatments yield promising results in the Chechen Republic

Russian Federation

In the Russian Federation, we run tuberculosis, mental health and cardiac care programmes in Chechnya.

For many years, we have been working closely with the Chechen Ministry of Health to implement a TB treatment programme. We focus on extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB), a type of TB that is resistant to second-line drugs.

We procure appropriate medicines, including new and repurposed drugs, to provide regimens that are more effective than the conventional treatment for patients with XDR-TB. The TB programme also includes laboratory support, health promotion and psychosocial assistance for patients and their families.

We also care for TB patients with diabetes co-morbidity, regularly monitoring their blood sugar and adjusting their treatment as required, and helping them to manage their condition.

In the Chechen capital, Grozny, and in Urus-Martan hospital, we support cardiac care in the emergency department of the hospitals, by supplying drugs and medical equipment and improving the quality of care for acute patients.
