Supplement to the evaluation of RWJF's Program: Old Disease, New Challenge: Tuberculosis in the 1990s

The Foundation's program, Old Disease, New Challenge: Tuberculosis in the 1990s, was designed to stimulate effective collaborations between state and health departments and other public and private agencies serving people at risk of tuberculosis exposure and infection to develop and test new approaches to the problem of tuberculosis.This grant provides supplemental support for the evaluation of the Foundation's program: Old Disease, New Challenge. Four of the five communities funded under this initiative to implement new approaches for detecting and managing the treatment of tuberculosis among high-risk populations have been granted six-month project extensions. This grant permits the evaluators to continue to document the experiences of the sites during the extension period, and to collect the information required for the planned implementation analyses. It is expected that evaluation findings will provide insight about the nature of the procedures for individual, group, and institutional change, and the organizational interactions necessary to develop and implement effective strategies to control the spread of tuberculosis among high-risk populations.
