The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) is an international scientific organisation headquartered in Paris, France. Established in 1920, The Union’s goal is to promote national autonomy within the framework of priorities of each country, by developing, implementing, and assessing anti-tuberculosis, lung health and non-communicable disease programmes, as well as other public health issues.

The Union has been working to improve health for people in low and middle-income countries, by conducting scientific research, and working with governments and other agencies, to translate research into better health for people around the world, and delivering projects directly in the field, driving change to ensure the best quality care.

The CTB project introduced digital solutions for training, treatment adherence, and learning management in the country and worked together with corporates, civil society organizations, research and academic institutions, media and celebrities and parliamentarians, to provide TB a national platform and garner the highest level of political commitment.

Project Axshya, a Global Fund Round 9 project also supported by USEA, extends the reach of India’s NTEP through advocacy, communication and social mobilization activities in 300 districts across 21 states. Other key projects of USEA include support to tobacco control efforts in India, Nepal and Bangladesh, through the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use; Project LIGHT, which brought fluorescent LED microscopes to 200 Medical Colleges across India; and the Eli-Lilly supported project to expand sustainable TB control in India.

USEA also coordinates training to build capacity in the management of TB and MDR-TB, operational research, programme management and other skills.
