HOPe project

This is a Household-based outreach and patient engagement cross sectional survey targeted to increase TB and HIV case finding among household TB contacts of index TB patients through active contact tracing and use of clinical referral tools in Uganda. The ministry of health initiated development of an electronic case-based surveillance system in November 2019 benchmarking on an electronic contact tracing register that was piloted in one of the HOPe project district (Kyenjojo district). This will be a nation-wide TB and leprosy electronic case-based surveillance system to facilitate centralised active surveillance and data-driven training and mentorship in TB care from the national TB and leprosy program.
