We permanently try to develop relations and partnerships with other national and international organizations, institutions, companies, in order to cooperate to the benefit of tuberculosis sufferers. Furthermore, all our actions address at the same time to both patients with TB and patients co-infected with HIV.

New Diagnostics:
Through the „Living together, breathing together” project we intend to facilitate patients’ access to modern, fast and safe diagnostic methods to reduce waiting times to confirm the diagnosis.
