Abstract

War zones in Sub-Saharan Africa represent a challenge for public health projects like TB control programs because planning and communication have been disrupted, doctors and medical workers flied to secure zones. We present a TB control program carried out by an Italian NGO, Italian Association for Solidarity among People (AISPO) in a referral Hospital of North Uganda (Lacor H).
