Background
In Tanzania, more than 75% tuberculosis patients opt for home-based DOT and are supported by a family or community member. However, this approach is difficult to implement in mobile populations like artisanal miners, resulting in lower treatment success rates in mining-heavy districts.

Implement a demonstration project of 99DOTS, an mHealth solution for improved monitoring of patient treatment adherence that also enables automatic prioritization of at-risk patients for health care worker follow up.


The proposed 18-month demonstration project will assess practicalities, scalability and impact of implementation of 99DOTS adherence technology. Implementation will take place in Geita, Simanjiro, Kahama and Chunya districts.
