NGO Jobs in Nairobi Kenya - KNCV

Organisation: KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation

This position is for Kenyan Nationals only.

KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against tuberculosis (TB), still the second most deadly infectious disease in the world.

KNCV is an international center of expertise for TB control that promotes effective, efficient, innovative and sustainable tuberculosis control strategies in a national and international context.  

We are an organization of passionate TB professionals, including doctors, researchers, training experts, nurses and epidemiologists. 


We aim to stop the spread of the worldwide epidemic of TB and to prevent the further spread of drug-resistant TB.

Over the past century we have built up a wealth of knowledge and expertise, initially by successfully controlling TB in the Netherlands. Since the 1970s, we have also shared our knowledge and expertise with the rest of the world. 

We operate from a central office in The Hague in the Netherlands, a regional office in Central Asia and country offices worldwide. KNCV raises funds from private, institutional, corporate, and government donors.

Challenge TB:
 KNCV is the lead partner in Challenge TB (CTB), the new USAID-funded 5-year global program to decrease TB mortality and morbidity in high burdened countries. 

We lead an international consortium with eight partner organizations: American Thoracic Society (ATS), Family Health International (FHI 360), Interactive Research & Development (IRD), Japanese Anti Tuberculosis Foundation (JATA), Management Sciences for Health (MSH), Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union), and the World Health Organization.

The overarching strategic objectives of Challenge TB are to improve access to quality patient centered care for TB, TB/HIV, and MDR-TB services; to prevent transmission and disease progression; and to strengthen TB platforms.

Background:
 The CTB Project follows on from other previous projects: TB CTA (2000-2005), TB CAP (2005-2010) and TB CARE I (2010-2015). 

Through these mechanisms the USAID East Africa Bureau made it possible that several organizations and/ or initiatives in the region were given extensive support: The East, Central and Southern Africa Health Community (ECSA-HC) in Tanzania, the Supra National TB Reference Laboratory (SNRL) in Uganda, the Center of Excellence on Drug Resistant TB (DR-TB) in Rwanda (CoE), the regional center for quality of health care (RCQHC) in Uganda, Childhood TB and TB-IC activities in Somalia, Lung Health Conferences in Kenya amongst others.
