Project Description

Tuberculosis (TB) is an enormous global public health problem and has emerged as a public health emergency in the independent country of Georgia due to high rates of drug-resistant TB. The Emory-Georgia TB Research Training Program (EGTB-RTP) aims to enhance TB-related research capacity in Georgia through research training of young Georgian investigators with great potential. Such efforts should result in building sustainable capacity to carry out internationally recognized TB-related research in Georgia and enhance the public health infrastructure for TB control in Georgia.
